Terry to extend his stay at the Bridge beyond the summer.
The impressive return to form of John Terry this season at Chelsea will see the captain rewarded with a new contract, reports the Telegraph.
Terry’s current deal with the club expires at the end of the campaign and as yet the Blues had not entered discussions with their skipper over a new one.
However, there could be potential problems in the negotiation process as there is a policy at Stamford Bridge that means outfield players over the age of 30 are not offered anything more than one-year deals.
At 33-years-old Terry is of course in that bracket and the defender is also likely to be asked to take a cut to his current £150,000-a-week wages if he wants to stay on at the club.
The centre-back wants more than 12 months due to the fact that he has missed just two Premier League matches all year and believes he can perform at the top for several more seasons.
Jose Mourinho is keen to keep Terry in west London as well, as several foreign clubs show interest in signing the Englishman themselves.
As a compromise Terry will be offered a selection of bonuses and add ons, plus a clause in the contract that automatically extends it by a further 12 months following a certain amount of appearances.
The defensive star is the only player in the current squad who is a product of the club’s youth system, having progressed to the first team in 1998 and played 575 matches in all competitions since.
