New Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti insists John Terry will stay at the club and is not for sale at any price.

FOOTBALL BETTING Sky Bet go 4/11 that John Terry will stay at Chelsea despite ongoing speculation that Manchester City are desperate to land the England skipper. It's now 2/1 the defender will join City. To see all the latest transfer specials

Terry's future at Stamford Bridge has been the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks with Manchester City lining up a mega-money move for the England international.

Chelsea have snubbed two offers for Terry already, with reports suggesting cash-rich City are weighing up a new improved bid for the central defender.

However, Ancelotti, who was unveiled as Chelsea's new manager on Monday, expects Terry to stay put and wants the player to stay on as captain of the Blues.

"John Terry is a symbol of this team," said Ancelotti.

"He will be captain next season. He said he wants to stay forever and we want to keep him forever.

"Now there is a question of Man City, but for Terry (there is) no price.

"Terry will be at Chelsea forever.

"He said he wants to stay, there is no problem for him with us, the story continues - Chelsea and Terry.

"I like to have a captain like Terry, he is very close to (Paulo) Maldini for professionalism, for quality and he will be the best captain for Chelsea.

"I spoke with Terry a month ago when I came to the club and he said welcome. And after he went on holiday.

"I will speak with him because he is the captain and I want a good relationship with the captain."

When asked if the club would offer Terry a new, improved contract, he added: "It's not my problem."
