John Terry and Man Utd come to decision over huge transfer claims

Neither Manchester United’s officials or John Terry himself have any eagerness to to sign the veteran defender up at Old Trafford, according to the latest reports.

Thursday’s papers ran a story that United were looking into the possibility of bringing the veteran defender to the club on a free transfer as Jose Mourinho looks to plug the shortfalls in his central defensive areas.

The centre-half, now 37, has been without a club since leaving Aston Villa at the end of last season. While it was expected at the time of his departure from Villa Park that he would retire, the Chelsea legend appears to have gotten itchy feet and has been linked with a number of clubs over the past fortnight.

A return to Villa has been mooted, while other reports have suggested a shock switch to Sporting Lisbon could be on the cards.

However, talk that a possible to move to United could be on the cards appears to be wide of the mark, with the Manchester Evening News claiming there has been no approach from either party that a deal for the free agent could be struck.

Mourinho has cut a frustrated figure in recent weeks after he saw summer hopes of signing a central defender dashed, with the likes of Leicester’s Harry Maguire, Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld, Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng and Diego Godin of Atletico Madrid all coveted by the United manager.

But while Mourinho and Terry enjoyed a fruitful partnership during their time together at Stamford Bridge, it seems reports over a new link-up at Old Trafford are, as initially expected, well wide of the mark.

The MEN claims there has been no contact from United for the player, while the paper also states Terry has no interest in moving to the Premier League, where he would come up against Chelsea.

However, it is claimed Terry is on the lookout for a new club and would not be opposed to extending his playing career into one final season.
