John Terry’s Chelsea career is set to be extended according to Blues manager, Jose Mourinho.

“I can guarantee he will be a Chelsea player next season” he announced in a press conference today.

Deal

Terry was named Man of the Match in Sunday’s Capital One Cup final at Wembley, where he scored in a 2-0 win over Spurs. After which he showed further commitment to his club career by ruling out a return to International duty.

The 34-year old has now made over 550 appearances for his club and won 15 major trophies, and clearly feels he has more in the tank: “If this is my last year, then I hope it goes out on a bang. But I am feeling great at the minute and it would be the wrong time to go.”

Chelsea are likely to offer Terry a one-year deal in co-ordinance with the club’s policy to only offer 12-month extensions to players over the age of 30.

Form

It’s not all been plain sailing for Terry in the last five years as injuries have kicked in, although Terry seems to have found the solution this year. Chelsea are likely monitoring that situation when looking to the future. It may well be that Terry continues as long as his body allows with no worries with his performance at current.
