Report: Branislav Ivanovic wants new Chelsea deal?

Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic is not interested in a move away from Stamford Bridge and instead keen on to extend his current contract at the west London club, according to Goal.com.

The 32-year-old has failed to make into the Blues’ first-team squad since manager Antonio Conte’s switch to a 3-4-3 formation.

Lack of regular football has seen the Serbian international linked with European heavyweights Juventus and Barcelona, as well as Premier League outfits West Ham and Crystal Palace.

The Spanish champions Barcelona are said to be after a new right-back in this new year when the transfer window reopens as a replacement for out-of-favour Aleix Vidal.

Ivanovic, who signed a new one-year contract last January, will instead aim to impress their manager in order to earn his place in the playing eleven.
