All three have just weeks left to run on their current deals at Stamford Bridge, and they were clearly emotional this weekend after their goalless draw with Norwich City as they performed their lap of honour.
Terry recently claimed that he wants to finish his career with the Blues, and Mourinho said that the trio’s association with the club is unlikely to end this season.
“Again, they are with the club on their future,” he told reporters.
“I think they will play [for Chelsea] again. I think so.”
Chelsea virtually saw their title challenge come to an end following Sunday’s disappointing draw with Norwich, just days after crashing out of the Champions League at the hands of Atletico Madrid.
It means Mourinho will end his first season back at Stamford Bridge without a trophy and the Portuguese expects a busy summer of comings and goings for the club in the transfer window.
“Now it’s time to wait a little. The summer is a long summer for us,” he added.
