John Terry is a divisive figure here in the Football Transfer Tavern, but our punters want to hear what the Daily Express has to say about the Chelsea skipper.
The publication have claimed that Terry and Chelsea are in talks over a new deal at Stamford Bridge and that the defender wishes to sty at Chelsea ‘forever’.
As our punters note while at the pool table, when it comes to his on-field talent, the defender is second to none, but his off-the-field antics have caused a fair few issues including his omission from the PFA Team of the Year and indeed his exit from the England international set-up.
Terry was called just as good as when he first played under Jose Mourinho by the manager at his press conference yesterday ahead of the Atletico Madrid clash, and Terry followed this by pledging his future to the Blues.
He noted: “I think when the manager speaks about forever I agree,
“I’ve been here since I was 14 and nowhere else. I want to stay here for the rest of my footballing days.
“We are still in talks which are on-going, because of the big games recently we haven’t spoken for a few weeks. But I hope it gets done as I want to stay.
“I hope things can be wrapped up by the end of the season.
“It’s down to the club. They know I want to stay.”
One thing that Terry did close the door on however was a recall to the England side, with the defender claiming that will never happen – and the only way he will be involved in the World Cup this summer will be via a TV screen.
Is John Terry fully deserving of a new deal at Chelsea? Is there a scenario where he will ever be capped by England again? Let us know your thoughts below.
