What do the fans have to say?
According to national newspapers today John Terry is ready to end his England retirement as Sir Alex Ferguson believes that José Mourinho will be the next Chelsea manager. Mourinho has made it known that he would like to return to the Premier League, it is well known he has unfinished business at Chelsea.
Terry would revel in the return of Mourinho as would Lampard as Chelsea look to regain the Premier League title.
Ferguson said on Sky Sports he thought it would be a three horse race next season, United, City and Chelsea.
Chelsea captain Terry believes he is still one of the world's leading defenders - and it is understood he has not fully closed the door on an England return despite his acrimonious departure from international football.
A source close to Terry has played down today a retuen to International football but what will the fans say as Terry carear will surely be extended without playing International football.
The 32-year-old's influence at Stamford Bridge has waned this season as fitness concerns have seen him overtaken in the pecking order.
Yet Terry maintains he is as good as ever and is believed to be prepared to consider making himself available for England once more despite being stripped of the captaincy after being charged with racially abusing Queens Park Rangers' Anton Ferdinand.
Any U-turn would be dependent on personalities in and around the squad, with Terry's resentment towards the Football Association evident last week when he rejected chairman David Bernstein's attempt to shake hands at the Champions League trophy handover.
Following the 2-1 Europa League semi-final win at Basle, Terry was asked if he is still as good a player after a decade of repelling the world's leading strikers. "Yes, I personally think that," he said.
"This year's been really frustrating for me, not playing and picking up the (knee) injury (against Liverpool in November).
