The last few days has brought the biggest and best-maybe for most – news our fans have heard, as our Captain and Legend John Terry penned a new deal to stay with us for the foreseeable future.
Today, a new bit of information has come out to make the renewal even better for us. John Terry has apparently agreed a whooping £90,000-a-week pay cut to stay at our club, according to the Daily Mail.
Of course, we all know how reliable our friends at the Daily Mail are, but this specific detail has circled around enough to lead us to the conclusion that it is at least, somewhat true. It also makes sense that Chelsea wanted Terry to sign, but only if he was prepared to be a little less costly, after being one of our highest earners in the past few years.
It was also said that Terry has agreed to relinquish any guaranteed starting time, which is apparently okay because our current captain is certain he can convince incoming manager, Antonio Conte that he is better than whoever he is going to be competing with next season.
Personally, I doubt JT will be able to claim a permanent place in the team but it is nice to know he still has plenty of fight in him, so let’s wish him good luck in the near future.
