Ligue 1 giants keen on snapping Chelsea ace up for £15m

Branislav Ivanovic Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern really are beginning to develop a huge dislike towards French club Paris Saint-Germain.

The Ligue 1 champions have already raided the West London club for David Luiz in a move worth £40 million but they don’t plan to stop there.

They have also been linked with making huge offers for Eden Hazard and Brazilian midfielder Oscar but the Parisians are now keen on landing another Blues star altogether.

According to Mail Online, PSG want talks with Branislav Ivanovic as they look to build a squad capable of challenging all the way to the Champions League final.

The Serbian still has two years left to run on his contract and is keen to end his career at Stamford Bridge.

But Chelsea seem unwilling to offer players over 30 new contracts of more than one year and this has alerted Laurent Blanc and his staff.

A £15 million bid is rumoured to be on the table from the Parisians and that offer is likely to set the ball rolling.

Mourinho may be willing to sell, despite having a good relationship with Ivanovic, as he continues lowering the average age of his squad.

The Special One has already shown Chelsea legends Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole the Stamford Bridge exit door and he wouldn’t be scared to do it again.

Chelsea fans: What do you think of the club’s decision not to usually offer contracts extensions of more than a year to players over 30? Let us know your thoughts below.
