Chelsea are among the clubs being linked with a move for the England striker, who has admitted he would like to leave United.
“He is the best player in the world for me,” Terry said.
“Wayne is the best young player in the world, I am no different to any other player in saying that.
“You obviously have to respect Manchester United and Wayne, but who knows what’s going to happen?
“We’ve got a great squad of players and he would add to that and strengthen the squad.”
