Chelsea morning news: Trio to have talks over new deals at the END of the season

A round up of the key news stories about Chelsea this morning.

John Terry, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole will all have talks over new contracts at the end of the season.

The three Chelsea icons were the subject of some speculation last month, linking them with moves away from Stamford Bridge before their deals expired.

However, reports suggest that the trio will all be offered new deals after the current campaign.

Jose Mourinho has written off Chelsea’s chances of winning the Premier League title.

The Blues face a huge clash this evening against Manchester City as the sides look to gain an advantage over each other in the title race.

“If we finish second it’s fantastic. If we finished second doing the formation work, it’s an acceleration of our process. It’s good. City are complete. They have everything good. We are not favourites to win any competition,” said Mourinho.

Father of Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has made an ultimatum to the West London club.

The Belgian is currently on loan at Atletico Madrid and Mourinho wants him back at the end of the season. However, his dad has said he’s not prepared to be back up to Petr Cech.

“For now, we expect to discuss with Chelsea - Alternating between the two is possible on paper but this is not what we want. This is not a situation we want,” he told RTBF.
