Chelsea fans are smiling here in the Football Transfer Tavern after hearing our landlord divulge the latest gossip from the Daily Mail who have an update on their skipper.
John Terry has been speaking about a new deal with the club over the last couple of weeks and now it seems that even Jose Mourinho has weighed in on the subject, all but confirming a new deal is in the offing.
The Chelsea boss made his feelings on Terry and his contract situation very clear, noting: ‘John accepted that we go year-after-year, with a smile,
‘He accepted the challenge and he won it and he is winning the challenge and the right to get one more year.’
Given Terry has been one of the standout Chelsea players this season and certainly looks like he has at least one more season in him, we think the deal is a no brainer – and the fact that the Blues skipper can pass down his wisdom to the likes of Kurt Zouma is another massive plus for the club.
The deal will extend Terry’s stay at Stamford Bridge and virtually guarantee the 34-year-old is a one man club for the entirety of his career.
Chelsea fans. How many more seasons do you think Terry can play on at this level for? Let us know your thoughts below.
