Chelsea aren't tempted into Terry talks

Published Add your comment

Chelsea have not been tempted into opening talks over a new contract for John Terry, despite serious interest in him from Galatasaray.

According to the Evening Standard, Stamford Bridge officials are in no rush to discuss an extension with Terry and his representatives until later in the season.

Galatasaray are reportedly ready to match the Blues captain's £170,000-a-week salary, as manager Roberto Mancini looks to shore up his back line.

Terry's current deal expires in the summer and he would be free to talk to other clubs abroad come January, though he may not be willing to do so.

The report claims the 32-year-old is keen to stay at Chelsea and hopes a deal can be struck quickly when the club decide they want to begin talks and that Terry believes there is a good chance he will be offered a new deal.

His relationship with manager Jose Mourinho is cited as a crucial factor in whether the former England captain gets a new deal and the report claims the pair are very close.

Terry has started every Premier league match since Mourinho left Real Madrid to take up a second stint as Chelsea manager and the influential centre-back has looked a little like his old self in recent weeks.
