Chelsea’s manager has stated that the club’s three veterans may well get new deals at Stamford Bridge.
With Chelsea’s constant search for the latest new superstars from European and world football, one could be forgiven for thinking that some of their ageing stars might be shown the door this summer.
"If they get a contract in this club, which probably they will, they will do based on performance, based on the quality they are showing,” the Portuguese coach is quoted as saying in The Independent.
“It will not be because they are legends or because we owe them something or because they want to stay here at any cost."
Terry and Lampard seem more than capable of continuing at this level, as they have been important players for Chelsea this term.
Cole has had to play second fiddle to Cesar Azpilicueta at left-back, and as such could well be more likely to consider his options.
