Centre back spent large parts of last season on the bench.
New Chelsea head coach Jose Mourinho is due to sit down with club captain John Terry to discuss the defender’s future at the club when the Blues gather for pre-season training, reports the Daily Mirror.
The former England captain was only used as a bit-part player under the previous Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez in the last campaign, featuring in only 27 matches in all competitions for the west London club, including just 14 Premier League contests, the fewest number of league appearances Terry has made for Chelsea since the 1999-00 campaign.
However, despite it being widely predicted that the 32-year-old would simply walk straight back into the Blues’ starting line-up when the new campaign kicks off, the Portuguese has so far only been able to confirm that the central defender will be retained as the club captain.
That does not, though, guarantee Terry a starting place at the heart of the Uefa Europa League winners’ back four, with both men set to sit down to discuss the future when they return from their holidays next month.
