Chelsea fans are looking worried here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it seems that the club could well be set to raise questions over the future of Branislav Ivanovic.
The right back was installed as vice skipper this summer, but now looks like losing his place in the line up after a couple of abject performances, and according to the Mirror, this could be the beginning of the end for the player.
The Blues have only offered the right back a one year contract extension, and as our regulars note, this has not gone down well with the player, and while it is club policy for those over 30, the defender is well aware he would be offered a longer term deal elsewhere.
Chelsea need to shake up their defence and add some seriously needed pace to the back line, and given Iva is one of their slowest players, it is hardly a shock the club are considering replacing him with Cesar Azpilicueta and seeing new signing Baba Rahman line up on the left hand side.
Chelsea fans. How much do you rate Ivanovic? Do you want to keep him in the side? Let us know your thoughts below!
