John Terry looks as though he could be set to extend his legendary status at Chelsea after entering talks with the club about extending his stay beyond his playing days, according to The Times.
Now at the grand old age of 35 and with a contract expiring at the end of the current season, Terry’s future at the club has come into doubt, but the report rates that talks have begun over keeping him there for the long term.
And not only are the discussions centred over a one-year extension to keep him on the pitch, they’re also talking to him about staying on into his retirement.
However, The Times also states that “it is unclear at this stage whether a contractual commitment to give him a coaching or ambassadorial role will be part of the deal.”
The move will serve to highlight how highly thought of Terry is at Stamford Bridge and what a huge part of the community he is there.
