Man City are readying a move to offer Chelsea veteran John Terry a two year contract this summer with the west London club still to agree an extension with the centre-back according to Football Direct News.

Etihad Stadium boss Manuel Pellegrini is in the market for an effective partner for Belgian Vincent Kompany and is keen on luring Terry to the club when his current Chelsea deal expires at the end of the current campaign.

The 33 year old has been a virtual ever present this term but the signing of Kurt Zouma in January may be a sign that Jose Mourinho is ready to freshen up his defence and therefore may not be ready to offer Terry a new deal and even if he were to do so only a 12 month contract would be on the table, as is club policy on players over the age of 30.

The one-club man, barring a loan spell at Nottingham Forest, may well feel he has a lot to offer and if he believes he is not valued by his current employers then an offer from elsewhere would have to be considered, even if that meant joining a Premier League rival.

Terry is into his 16th season at Stamford Bridge and has amassed a total of 615 appearances for Chelsea.
