John Terry has a) been in absolutely superb form this season and b) about three months to go on his current contract. It's not difficult to see where this is going, and the Telegraph is reporting that Chelsea have now opened talks with the captain on the subject of a potential new deal.
Will the discussions go smoothly? I'd imagine that that's down to how far Terry's willing to compromise. He's currently on very high wages and will probably need to take a paycut, and despite his stature at the club it's hard to see the Blues giving him a multi-year contract at 33. Not being John Terry, I don't know where he stands on a one-year, lower-wage deal, but I can't really see him going elsewhere at this point in his career. He's still contributing at the top level, and beyond that he has the chance to be a one-club man, a pretty big deal in this day and age.
