John Terry is reportedly set to return to Chelsea after five years away from Stamford Bridge.
According to The Athletic, the 41-year-old will return to west London in the new year to help the academy’s youth development.
One of the best players in club history, the 41-year-old captain served as Chelsea captain at the start of a new dynasty of success for West Londoners.
He won five Premier League titles, five FA Cups and a Champions League title in his time at Stamford Bridge, becoming the club’s most decorated player.
He has also won five league cups and one Europa League in more than 700 appearances for Chelsea.
The former England international will be tasked with finding the next Mason Mount and Reece James at Stamford Bridge, as did his legendary former Blues teammate Frank Lampard.
After a successful season at Derby, Lampard was handed the reins at Stamford Bridge and steered them to the top four without their then talisman, Eden Hazard, in his debut season.
However, he was sacked after 18 months in charge, before Thomas Tuchel won and won the Champions League in his first six months in the role.
Terry, meanwhile, left his role as assistant to Dean Smith at Aston Villa last summer and it is understood that he was offered several roles as manager.
Terry, who also served as England captain for six years, hopes to reproduce his former team-mates Lampard, Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard and take his first steps in management in the near future.
