Cahill to be given a new contract after a great season.
One player who has really benefited from the return of Jose Mourinho as manager is centre-back Gary Cahill and the Englishman is to be offered a new four-year deal, according to the Mirror.
The 28-year-old has become an established part of the first team and has formed a brilliant central defensive partnership with captain John Terry.
The Blues are now prepared to reward this fine form with a new contract for Cahill, which will cap off what has been a great season for the defender.
Since arriving at Stamford Bridge from Bolton Wanderers in January 2012 for £7m, the England international has endured indifferent form.
However, this campaign has finally proved that Cahill was right when turning down both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in favour of the west London club.
In all competitions the defensive ace has played 21 matches and in the past two years has collected a Champions League and Europa League winners medals.
Although Cahill still has three years left on the player’s current deal, Mourinho wants to reward the form of this term and make it clear to any potentially interested parties that the defender is not for sale.
Not only is the former Bolton man now established at club level, but is also an important part of Roy Hodgson’s England side and has formed a solid partnership with Everton’s Phil Jagielka at the back.
Cahill is almost certain to be on the plane to Brazil this summer for the 2014 World Cup – barring any injuries – and is likely to be earning a lot more caps in the next few years.
