John Terry has revealed his representatives are still locked in talks with Chelsea over the possibility of renewing his contract at Stamford Bridge.
The 33-year-old's current deal is due to expire at the end of the season - along with Chelsea teammates Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard.
Blues duo Cole and Lampard have both been linked with moves to the MLS over the past few months as they are no longer seen as integral members of Chelsea's first team.
Terry, on the other hand, has had an exceptional season alongside Gary Cahill in the heart of Chelsea's defence.
The former England defender has also proved his match fitness by playing in all-but three of Chelsea's 36 Premier League games.
The Chelsea captain, who has declared himself fit for his side's Champions League encounter against Atletico Madrid, has admitted he wants to retire at Stamford Bridge.
Terry, speaking to reporters, said on his future: "It’s a club I’ve been at since I was 14 and I want to stay here for the rest of my footballing days.
"Talks are going on, but obviously we’ve had a lot of big games so we’ve not spoken for a few weeks.
"They know I want to stay, I’ve made that very clear to them and hopefully it can be sorted by the end of the season.
"I certainly feel I’ve got something to give next year and after that I don’t know, but I certainly hope so."
Terry will be playing in front of Mark Schwarzer on Wednesday night as Petr Cech has been ruled out of their second leg semi-final tie - despite making an appearance at Chelsea's training ground in Cobham.
