John Terry is a Chelsea legend, there is no doubt about that. Last summer manager José Mourinho made the decision to let another legend go in the form of Frank Lampard. That move proved costly when Lampard scored to deny Chelsea 3 points against Manchester City so it seems John Terry will not be given the same opportunity.
According to The Sun, José Mourinho is on the verge of offering John Terry a new Blues contract as his current deal expires at the end of the season. The defender signed an extension in the summer to remain at the club for the 2014/15 season but as some of England’s former stalwarts such as Steven Gerrard, Rio Ferdinand and Frank Lampard prepare for life after football, it appears Terry still has a role to play.
John Terry is currently 33-years-old and joined Chelsea in 1998 from the prestigious West Ham United youth academy. Terry made his first team debut in October 1998 and has since gone on to record a phenomenal 632 appearances in all competitions for the Stamford Bridge club. Terry had a short loan spell at Nottingham Forest but other than that has played 429 Premier League matches for Chelsea.
JT as he is known, represented England on 78 occasions captaining both club and country. His trophy cabinet includes 3 Premier League titles, 5 FA Cups, 2 League Cups, 2 FA Community Shields, a UEFA Europa League and a UEFA Champions League. It seems Terry’s career, something schoolboys dream of, will continue at Chelsea as he gets ready to sign him name on the dotted line again.
