John Terry set to pen one-year extension.
Chelsea captain John Terry looks all set to sign a one-year contract extension at the club where he has spent his entire career, with the Mail reporting that manager Jose Mourinho has described the deal for his captain as a ‘formality’.
Chelsea’s policy of only offering one year contract extensions to players over the age of 30 means that Terry’s current deals expires at the end of the season, but the former England man’s form has been so impressive this season that he is even being talked about as a contender for the PFA Player of the Year award.
Mourinho has lavished praise on Terry, as well as his central defensive partner Gary Cahill, throughout a season in which they have led the Premier League table from the off, and has now revealed that a new contract for Terry is imminent:
“There are no doubts that he is going to get another contract. I know that, he knows that.”
“We in the club, in the board, we know that and I think also you have to feel that.”
“Without us confirming anything you have to feel that. He’s a very important player in the team so the next contract sooner or later will come. It’s a formality.”
