Man City plot to raid Chelsea for experienced defender

IvanovicManchester City and Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern had to be separated this afternoon, as they almost came to blows when one punter spilled the latest gossip he’d heard.

The Daily Mail states Manchester City are eyeing a shock move to land Branislav Ivanovic from Chelsea, if negotiations regarding a new deal in West London for the Serbian international fall apart.

Ivanovic is currently free to discuss a pre-contractual agreement with sides outside of England as his contract is due to expire this summer. However, he will have to wait until the end of the season to discuss terms with Manchester City.

Chelsea don’t want to lose the experienced defender and reports yesterday stated he’d agreed a one-year extension to his deal at Stamford Bridge. Should that proposed deal fall apart though, City are ready to swoop.

Ivanovic has been out of-form this season and many Chelsea fans in the tavern think it would be a good call to offload him. However, they admit they don’t want to see him at Manchester City- especially after the pain they went through with Frank Lampard.

Chelsea fans, would you let Ivanovic leave this summer? Let us know in the comments below!
