Metro have a sensational claim for Chelsea fans to chew over here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they note that the club could well be set lose one of their star men.
Moneybags French side Paris Saint-Germain are in the hunt for Branislav Ivanovic and are willing to offer the defender a huge pay rise if he agrees to join the Parc Des Princes-based side this summer.
Jose Mourinho will move to block this transfer immediatley however, as he noted that Ivanovic will be one of the key men in his new look Chelsea side. Mourinho was even believed to have rung the player personally when he re-joined the Blues this summer.
Ivanovic can of course play at the back in the heart of defence or even at full back meaning he is an incredibly versatile asset.
Given that John Terry is not what he once was back in the glory days of Mourinho’s first spell in charge and David Luis has faced constant speculation over his future, Mourinho knows that the Serbian is a key player and cannot afford to allow him to leave.
Elsewhere, PSG are closing in on the signature of Napoli’s Edinson Cavani who Chelsea were heavily linked with this summer.
Do PSG stand any realistic chance in luring one of Chelsea’s best players to the French capital? Let us know your thoughts below.
