Terrry Extends Chelsea Stay

John Terry has ended speculation over his future by signing a one-year contract extension with Chelsea.
The 33-year-old is said to have turned lucrative offers from foreign teams to prolong his stay at Stamford Bridge, after agreeing a deal that will reportedly pay him in the region of £175,000 per week.
Terry, who is a product of Chelsea’s youth academy and made his debut in 1998, has been handed the contract after a superb individual season with the Blues, which saw him return to peak form following the return of manager Jose Mourinho, after losing his place under Rafael Benitez last term.
It was initially claimed Terry would have to take a substantial pay cut to extend his spell at Chelsea into his 17th season as a member of the first-team.
Talks appeared to have stalled late in the season, leaving Terry in the dark over his future. But Mourinho had recommended that Chelsea offer the club captain a contract extension and, after negotiations resumed last week, he has been rewarded for strong performances as the Blues finished third in the league and reached the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.
“I’m delighted to have signed an extension to my contract with Chelsea taking me into my 20th year with the club”, Terry told Chelsea’s website.
“I’d like to thank the fans and club for their continued support, and the manager who was instrumental for me the last season”.
