Mourinho expects Terry and Lampard to be offered new deals and has previously spoken of anticipating an offer to be made to Cole, too, despite the left-back being out of favour at present.
"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," Mourinho said.
"It will not be because they are legends or because we owe them something or because they want to stay here at any cost. They are performing."
