Chelsea scouts told to look for replacement for struggling defender

mourinho3333Much has been talked about this season regarding the form of Chelsea players, since their dismal start to the campaign and complete lack of winning mentality.

John Terry, long-time club captain and hero for many fans, has come under unprecedented scrutiny – first it was a half time substitution against Manchester City, and then it was a reckless red card the following week that has seen many punters in this boozy Transfer Tavern right his career off, and feel his time as an ever present figure is all but over.

However, another vital player to the Chelsea back four, that has always been adored by fans but this term has struggled, is Branislav Ivanovic. Now 31, he is coming to the end of his stellar career but for many Blues in here he still has a lot to offer.

So the news coming in today is ruffling a few feathers! The Mail are reporting that with the Serbian out of contract at the end of the season, Mourinho has ordered scouts to look for replacements!
