All the latest Chelsea news including the academy's heir to John Terry's throne, Eden Hazard contract and interview and Jose Mourinho on Sir Alex Ferguson.

Chelsea have another John Terry on their hands but chief executive Ron Gourlay refuses to name the academy prospect, most probably due to fears it will add undue pressure on the youngster's shoulders.

On the club's developmental unit in West London, Gourlay said in the Evening Standard: "We've got a core of superb young English boys coming through. I think I know who, in time, could be the next John Terry but I will not name him. We have a great academy process. But the academy started nine years ago and you don't start delivering players immediately.

"We're now seeing three academy players in the first-team squad [Nathan Ake, Andreas Christensen and Lewis Baker] which is fantastic. Now let's see them break into the first team and play regularly.

"Jose has said if Izzy Brown, Dominic Solanke and Lewis Baker are not in the Chelsea first team in a couple of years, he will have failed. He takes great pride in the academy."

Who do you think the next John Terry is at Chelsea?

As for the present; most of the talk surrounds Eden Hazard…

Manager Jose Mourinho has said that the 23-year-old will likely commit to a new contract in "one more month" as the player "wants to stay and commit for many years."

The Portuguese also believes Hazard has great potential to develop into a great player, into the great player of his generation.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Hazard wants to enhance his already extraordinary statistics on the way to helping Chelsea lift the Champions League: "I can be better, I can be better!" he said.

"Last season was very good but now I can win trophies and be better. I can continue like this, score more, get more assists… I have more experience [now]. I will try to do my best, especially in the Champions League as you have to be good.

"The thing I remember from Chelsea winning the Champions League was Didier Drogba and yes [it enhanced my desire to play for Chelsea]. I hope we can win it again."

And finally, Jose Mourinho labeled Sir Alex Ferguson as the "greatest" in this country when it comes to team management, but warned his Scottish rival that he aims to emulate the former Manchester United mainstay by winning the Champions League trophy three times.

Currently, Mourinho has two wins in the competition - the same as Ferguson.
