It’s hard to imagine Chelsea without John Terry as its captain.
But time waits for no one, and one day in the not too distant future, the Blues will be forced to put out a starting team without the 31-year-old defender who has been one of the club’s leaders on and off the field over the last decade.

So when Terry decides to retire who are the possible candidates from the Blues current roster who have what it takes to take over the captaincy?
Here are five I think would be up for the job, with the pros and cons of each.
