Terry ignored a move to Spartak Moscow, spurring strong indications he could be set for a Chelsea return have reportedly speaking to new boss Maurizio Sarri on that happening.
But the veteran says he is “undecided” about his future yet.
Blues boss Sarri welcomed the prospect of the 37-year-old returning to Stamford Bridge, and remarked that he would be delighted to include Terry in his coaching crew.
Currently, the former England and Chelsea captain is working with the young lads at the Blues Cobham training ground and revealed that his “end game” is to be a manager someday.
He told Chelsea’s The 5th Stand:
“Still undecided what I’m doing next. My end game is to be a manager and that’s what I’m working towards with the younger boys here.”
Part of the reasons Terry put down a deal to move to the Russia was the need to be close with his family.
He said: : “Good seven weeks with the family, which is the first time in 22 years. Some real quality time.
“Just really important to switch off after my career and reflect on things.
“I was training every day. I wanted to stay fit in case something came along. I’m still waiting.
“Undecided, but enjoying my time to really concentrate on my badges. It’s what I really want to do.”
