Gus Poyet: John Terry was ‘100 per cent’ moving to China – but he won’t be now

first_imgGus Poyet claims the recently-introduced rules regarding foreign players in the Chinese Super League could cost John Terry a huge final pay day in China.Terry will leave Chelsea at the end of the season after 22 years at the club and has been linked with a money-spinning move to the Far East.But with Chinese clubs now only able to field three foreign players, Shanghai Shenhua boss Poyet doubts there will be many willing to spend big to bring in a 36-year-old defender.Poyet, who played alongside Terry at Stamford Bridge, told talkSPORT in an exclusive interview: “If you asked me in December before they changed the rules, I would have said straight away he was coming [to China]. I was 100 per cent sure. No doubt.“But with the new system, it is special to buy a defender. The mentality has changed a lot because they [Chinese teams] are looking for players to make the difference up front – the ones that are going to bring people to the stadium.”Gus Poyet tells talkSPORT he ‘would love’ to sign Diego Costa – but admits Shanghai Shenhua deal ‘very difficult’last_img
