Jose Mourinho believes John Terry will sign a new deal and see out his playing days at Chelsea

Mourinho hopeful for new deal as Terry's current contract expires in June

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is confident that club captain John Terry will sign a new deal and finish his career at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues’ centre-back will see his current contract end in June but Mourinho is confident that Terry will pen a new deal soon.

It is understood that Chelsea have offered the 33-year-old a one-year contract extension but on reduced wages and it is believed that Terry is after more.

Terry has only missed two Premier League games this season and played every minute of all his other games, scoring three times.


When asked about Terry’s contract situation, Mourinho said: “The manager wants him to stay; the club know I want him to stay, the club want him to stay, he wants to stay, so normally he is staying.”
