The A4 placards have spoken. Out of the blue, Chelsea have offered John Terry a new one-year extension to his current contract, which is due to expire at the end of this season.
Given that Chelsea this morning cancelled a ‘Farewell John’ tribute segment at their upcoming end-of-season awards shindig, the whole thing hasn’t come as much of a surprise.
Still, the Blues used Guus Hiddink’s Friday press conference to break the news…

So, now the only decision Terry has to make is whether to stick around and give Antonio Conte the old ‘sour-faced club legend on the bench’ migraine all next season or swan off to China and earn half-a-million quid every seven days.
It’s a tough life, this footballer malarkey.
