Clement, nominated for the manager of the season award after leading Swansea to safety, intends to speak to the former England captain about playing on next year after he brings down the curtain on his Chelsea career on Sunday.

The 36-year-old has made almost 500 appearances for the Blues since 1998 and has helped them win the Premier League title for the fifth time in his career this season.

Clement worked with Terry at Stamford Bridge, firstly as a coach under Guus Hiddink in 2009 and then for two seasons as assistant manager to Carlo Ancelotti.

They won the double together in 2009-10.

“The fact is, I know John, he is a top player and a free agent. So it would only be sensible to have a discussion with him to see if he would be interested,” said Clement.

“I don’t know if he has already decided on somewhere else. A lot of the time these things are already done. But if that is not the case, and he would be open to a conversation, then I would be open to that as well.”
