It seems that no other club will be able to get their hands on controversial former England captain John Terry before he retires after news broke that Chelsea are planning to open talks with him over a new deal that will see the defender finish his career at Stamford Bridge.
The 32-year-old currently has a deal which expires in 2014 but the Evening Standard understands that both parties are keen to start negotiations to keep him at the club until his retirement.
The paper that Chelsea fans have pinned to the noticeboard suggests that the Blues have a policy of offering players who are 30 and older a 12-month extension but it appears they may make an exception with the club captain.
Chelsea have fully supported Terry throughout his year full of court trials and controversy and he remains a hugely influential player at the club.
It’s clear that Terry is still the Blues’ best defender and he is convinced that he can play at the highest level for years to come – something that a new deal will enable him to do.
