Chelsea will not upgrade contract of Man City target Terry

Chelsea won't be upgrading skipper John Terry's contract, despite interest from Manchester City.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea are understood to be unwilling to improve on the £130,000-a-week Terry receives under the terms of his current deal which has three years left to run.

The power brokers at Stamford Bridge are believed to be eager for Terry, who returns to training on Thursday, to publicly pledge his loyalty to Chelsea, while manager Carlo Ancelotti's unreserved praise of the 28-year-old yesterday has certainly placed the ball firmly in the defender's court.

Terry has little option other than to hand in a written transfer request to the club where he has spent his entire career should he be determined to push through an extremely lucrative move to Mark Hughes' side.
