Gianfranco Zola has confirmed his interest in taking Chelsea star John Terry to the Middle East.
Chelsea legend Zola admits he is eyeing a bold move to take his former Stamford Bridge teammate Terry to his Qatar club Al Arabi.
Terry’s place in the Chelsea team is no longer certain after being dropped by boss Jose Mourinho earlier this season.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, Zola said: “John Terry is a big player and Al Arabi is interested in big players so we will see what happens.
“There is a chance because it is one of the places where people want to go. The quality of life is very high here.
“There are clubs that pay well for the players to come so I wouldn’t be surprised if I see John Terry playing in this country maybe next year, maybe in two years I don’t know exactly when.
“The connection is easy, me and John played together and have a very high opinion of each other so it comes quite natural to do that.
“I cannot say that it is impossible because you never know. I can tell you there are no contacts right now, that’s for sure.
“We will see because right now we are just month and a half into the season and I am very happy that I am coaching so I didn’t even think about changing anybody. But in the future we will see. It could be one possibility.”
