Galatasaray have dropped their interest in Chelsea captain John Terry, according to the Metro.

Roberto Mancini's Galatasaray had been linked with a move to sign the 32-year-old veteran defender however the former Manchester City boss has pulled out of the race to sign Terry, as the long-term Chelsea servant remains keen on staying at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are yet to open contract talks with Terry's representatives - despite the fact that the defender's current deal runs out at the end of the season.

Mancini was reportedly weighing up a January move for the experienced centre-back, however Terry's camp has told Galatasaray's boss that their client does not want to move clubs midway through a season.

Terry is likely to be handed a new one-year deal before his current contract expires, as the defender has been in fine form for the Stamford Bridge outfit since winning back his place in the heart of Chelsea's defence.
