Chelsea veteran believes club will offer him extension
Chelsea captain John Terry is confident that the club will offer him a one-year extension come the end of the season.
The veteran’s relationship with Jose Mourinho has been tested so far this campaign, and after being subbed off at half-time against Manchester City, questions were asked.
Mourinho has been using Kurt Zouma a lot more frequently for the Blues this season as well, slowly edging out the club-captain in order to plan for the future.
However, despite his slow start to the 2015/2016 campaign, Terry is feeling confident that a new deal will be put on the table for him.
Legends Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole have both left Stamford Bridge in recent years after the club refused to extend their stays, but Terry doesn’t think that will happen to him.
Due to his age and the club’s policy, the defender will only be offered another 12-month extension.
Sources close to the 34-year-old are adamant that the centre-back isn’t finished yet and will still play a huge role in the Chelsea team.
