The Daily Mail have Chelsea fans looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that there have been no moves to open talks with right back Branislav Ivanovic over a new deal.
As one of our punters notes, the player is free to talk to foreign clubs come January 1st and we think there will be a long line of those who are desperate to add him to their ranks.
Not only is Ivanovic pretty handy when it comes to defending, he is also a player who chips in with a fair few big goals over the course of a season, and we think he is someone Jose Mourinho will do everything in his power to keep and we can fully understand why.
Chelsea fans. Is this a player you have to keep at all costs or is he someone who you think will be the next legend to leave for a rival side? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
