Maurizio Sarri would be happy to see John Terry return to Chelsea as part of his backroom staff at Stamford Bridge.
Terry is currently without a club having left Aston Villa at the end of the 2017-18 Championship campaign after Steve Bruce’s side were beaten in the play-off final by Fulham in May.
A surprise move to Spartak Moscow looked on the cards last week, but Terry opted against the switch to Russia for family reasons.
Terry has already spoken to Sarri about a future role at Chelsea, but he remains intent on having one more year as a player before moving into coaching.
“The last time I spoke with him he told me that he wants to play for another season, but I don’t know the situation now,” Sarri told a media conference.
“I am talking about a week ago, I don’t know the situation. But Chelsea is his home, of course.
Terry made more than 700 appearances for Chelsea, winning five Premier League titles, five FA Cups and the 2012 Champions League.
He played 36 times last season for Villa, who were beaten in the Championship play-off final by Fulham.
