Chelsea FC offer John Terry contract extension


Chelsea FC have offered captain John Terry a contract extension.

After months of speculation that Chelsea FC defender, John Terry, would be leaving Stamford Bridge after the season concluded, it is revealed that the club has offered him a new year contract in the hopes the club legend will stay for one more year.

ESPN’s Liam Twomey tweeted out that Terry met with the club’s directors, Marina Granovskaia and Michael Emenalo, and they offered him a contract extension.

The clubs official twitter even mentioned that a new contract has been put on the table for Terry and that the 35-year-old is considering his options.

It was reported recently that the Englishman had a lucrative contract offer from a Chinese Super League club, an offer that could be as much as  £12,000,000 a year.

Seeing that Terry could actually go to another club and not choose to hang up his boots, Chelsea must have thought they should keep a player that has been a big part of their history, not to mention the outpour of supporters who want their captain to stay for another year.

Current manager Gus Hiddink told reporters on Friday how important Terry has been to the club since he joined in 1998.

Terry has been a big part in the club’s history, appearing in over 400 matches and being named UEFA’s club defenders of the year in 2005, 2008, 2009. He also led the team to four Premier League titles, four FA Cups and their Champions League win in 2012. When he was named team captain in 2004, he led the team to their second-ever league title, a season in which they only lost once and had a total of 95 points.
