Terry said, "I actually went up to Man United for a year, so I was kind of travelling up in school holidays, I went up with David Beckham when he signed his first pro contract.
“We went up in the car together, I was there on a two-week training camp. I went up, stayed up for a couple weeks every school holiday really on my own, which was tough to be fair, being away from home.
“Then I had the option between Arsenal, Chelsea and Man United and to be fair all of them went above and beyond. The moment I walked into Chelsea, it just felt right, I know that's going to sound really bizarre.
“My dad never wanted me to sign for Chelsea. Actually, on the pitch of me signing my schoolboy form at the club, my dad refused to go on the pitch with me. I'm in the tunnel, the players are coming off the pitch and I'm waiting in the tunnel, Glenn Hoddle goes past and my dad's going,
“You're not signing for this football club, we should sign for Man United. Again, me being me at the time I'm going, 'I'm 100 per cent I'm signing here, if you don't come out with me I'm going out to sign'."
