Skipper has been at the club since 1998.
Chelsea have opened talks with captain John Terry about extending the centre back’s stay at Stamford Bridge beyond the end of this season, according to reports in the Daily Telegraph.

The former England international’s current deal with the west London club’s runs out at the end of June and it is understood that the skipper had previously been frustrated at the time it had taken his employers to begin discussions over a new deal.
However, the Blues hierarchy have now sat down with the player’s agent Aaron Lincoln about the possibility of Terry remaining in the capital next season, although there still remains the issue of the length of deal on the table to resolve.
And that is because the west Londoners only operate a strict policy of offering just one-year contracts to players aged 30 and above and with Terry now 33, it may be hard for the Englishman to secure the long-term deal that he is believed to be after.
But it is still expected that the two parties will be able to come to some sort of agreement over this sticking point, as well as the issue of Terry having to take a pay cut on his current £150,ooo-per-week contract.
