ENGLAND CAPTAIN'S LOVER IN [Pounds Sterling]250,000 BID WAR; NEWSPAPERS FIGHT FOR STORY OF TERRY AFFAIR WITH TEAM-MATE'S EX; Terry to Face England Boss as His Wife Flees to Dubai

THE mistress of England and Chelsea captain John Terry is at the centre of a [pounds sterling]250,000 bidding war to sell her story, it was claimed today.

Lingerie model Vanessa Perroncel, 28, is in negotiations with at least six newspapers, according to her publicist Max Clifford.

Thousands of angry England fans bombarded internet messages boards and radio phone-ins urging England boss Fabio Capello to sack his captain or risk damaging the team's prospects at this summer's World Cup in South Africa.

Terry, who is set to play for Chelsea tomorrow night away at Hull, is expected to learn his fate on Friday after Capello returns from Italy.

Perroncel could be prepared to address claims that Terry paid for her to have a secret abortion at a private clinic in October. She used to live with Bridge with whom she has a four-yearold son. Terry's wife Toni Poole, 28, has told friends she feels "humiliated" and is said to have demanded a divorce before fleeing their [pounds sterling]4million home in Oxshott, Surrey, to stay in Dubai with the couple's twins.

Bridge, 29, who separated from Perroncel last summer, is understood to be furious at the betrayal but has refused to comment publicly.

The huge level of interest in her story has left her "overwhelmed", Clifford said. He visited her at home last night to help her weigh up her options and expects her to make a decision "in the next day or two". …
