Unfortunately, it would appear that John Terry is embarking on his Chelsea swansong…

The legendary Chelsea skipper has been the most important player in the Chelsea first team for over a decade, but under Antonio Conte – it appears clear that he is being phased out.

A 3 man defence was never going to suit the veteran centre-half, and at 35 years old; he is certainly entering the final few years of his career.

His final Chelsea appearance will undoubtedly be a sad one, but with his contract expiring at the end of the season – it appears likely that that day will come sooner, rather than later.

Chelsea must continue to look forward, however, and Antonio Conte must prepare for the inevitable. Chelsea have had a talismanic centre-half in the heart of the defence for years – and John Terry must be replaced successfully.

With that said, these 2 defenders would be great John Terry replacements at Chelsea – agreed?
