There is some brilliant news for Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern coming from the Daily Star.
The publication have claimed that Blues skipper John Terry is set to sign a contract extension with the club – despite looking rather emotional at the final home game of the season.
We had worried this may mean that Terry was set to leave the club after a career that could not be paralleled, but now we are hearing that the defender is set to stay one more year at the very least.
Terry had made it very clear he wanted to stay at Chelsea – and the club wanted him to remain a Blue to boot – but the sticking issue was the wages offered.
A substantial pay cut has been taken by the 33-year-old, who was earning around £160,000 per week – yet will now see his weekly wage halved.
Whilst this will not mean he has to cut back just quite yet, it is a statement from Chelsea and one that means they will not be paying huge wages to everyone any longer.
Chelsea fans. How pleased are you that Terry looks set to remain a Blue for life? Let us know your thoughts below.
