Chelsea could offer new contracts to veteran trio John Terry, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole, according to the Sun.

Terry, 33, Lampard, 35, and Cole, 33, are all out of contract in the summer, and it has been speculated whether their futures lie at Stamford Bridge.

The Sun claims they "are being offered new deals," as manager Jose Mourinho is keen to retain their services, having worked with them during his first stint at the club.

The Telegraph, meanwhile, reports that Mourinho has been given the authority by owner Roman Abramovich to decide on the players' futures.

In terms of arrivals, Chelsea are expected to clinch the services of Nemanja Matic this week from Benfica, after the player said he was set for a return to West London.
