Chelsea defender facing £65K pay-cut

Chelsea defender John Terry must take a hefty pay-cut to remain with the club beyond the summer, according to reports at the weekend.

The Daily Mail reports that the Blues skipper, currently earning £165,000 in west London, is on the radar of Galatasaray.

However, the club believe that the former England captain’s camp are playing up the interest of the Turkish giants, and their hand will not be forced over the issue.

Terry has become a Chelsea legend over the last 15-years, making his debut for the club in 1998 and going on to feature over 500 times in all competitions for the club.

He’s also worn the armband during the Blues’ most successful period in English football, winning three Premier League titles, two FA Cups and a precious Champions League.

That won’t guarantee him a new deal under owner Roman Abramovich though, and the Chelsea star will need to accept terms in the region of £100,000 if he’s to stay on Jose Mourinho’s watch.

If Terry does leave the club, then other English outfits are already being linked, with West Ham and QPR speculatively linked with moves by the paper.
