Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are looking at the news from the Daily Star with interest – as the media outlet suggests that Inter Milan are confident of securing a deal to sign Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic on a free transfer.
Our resident Chelsea fans here in the Tavern have been slamming the Serbian defender all season, with them all agreeing he is past his sell by date, and wouldn’t actually mind seeing the full-back offloaded to Serie A.
At the age of 31, Ivanovic is certainly reaching the latter stages of his playing career, and our landlord says it would not be a surprise to see the defender leave the club for pastures new.
Ivanovic has been a shadow of his former self this season, with the defender consistently getting rinsed by pacy wingers week in week out – a major factor in Chelsea’s dramatic demise this season.
The publication suggests that Inter Milan are prepared to offer Ivanovic a two-year deal, and our Blues fans want to see this deal done sooner, rather than later!
Chelsea fans….. Do you share the view of the Chelsea punters? Would you be happy to see the full-back depart? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
