Chelsea rubbish John Terry Valencia claims
Chelsea have rubbished talk they are on the verge of selling John Terry to Valencia.
The Sun reports that Spanish agent Francois Gallardo claimed the Blues skipper is considering a move to the La Liga giants after deciding to leave Stamford Bridge.
But the European champions were quick to play down the claims, with a club spokesman brandishing the story “nonsense."
Gallardo had earlier said: “Valencia are negotiating, and I am involved in person.
“The offer is on his table. The player is out of contract in June and will not renew there for several reasons at Chelsea and he wants to come to Spain.
“He asked to leave. It’s real. This has been going on for 15 days and two meetings have already took place. I think he will accept.”
Terry, who has 18 months left on his deal at the west London club, is currently serving a four-match ban for racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.
The former England skipper and Chelsea favourite has played for the London club throughout his pro career.
