Terry still unsure of Chelsea future

John Terry still doesn’t know if he will be offered a new Chelsea contract, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

John Terry

The Chelsea captain’s current deal expires at the end of the season and while fellow defenders Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta are in talks over fresh terms, talks have yet to begin with Terry.

Chelsea have a policy of not offering more than a one-year deal to outfield players over 30 and the 33-year-old Terry has been told there will be no exceptions.

The newspaper claims Terry could look elsewhere in search of a longer deal, particularly if it comes with a reduction in his £165,000 per week wage.

Cahill and Azpilicueta will be given new contracts to represent their increased standing at the club, with Cahill now Terry’s regular partner in the centre of defence and Azpilicueta becoming Jose Mourinho’s first-choice left-back, despite being naturally right-sided.

Mourinho is reported to have recommended Terry’s contract be extended but backed the policy of only offering one-year deals to players in Terry’s age range.

Terry’s teammates Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard are in similar situations, although both signed the one-year contracts they were offered in 2013.

Barring a brief loan spell at Nottingham Forest, Terry has spent the entirety of his career at Stamford Bridge, winning three Premier League titles, a host of other domestic trophies, and the Champions League.
