According to Novantesimo.it, reigning Italian champions Inter Milan could sign Serbian defender Branislav Ivanovic as early as January.
There has been speculation on Ivanovic for several weeks now as it has emerged that the Serbian international defender would like to try himself at a club other than Chelsea. This despite the fact that he is more or less a regular under Chelsea manager Luiz Felipe Scolari.
But it has now been reported that the player’s agent and Italian powerhouse Inter Milan’s representatives shall meet in London this week to discuss the situation. The player’s agent Vlado Borozan has stated:
“There is strong interest shown by Inter, and on Wednesday we are going to talk with Chelsea, before speaking with Inter later in the week. At the moment, I’m not sure what Chelsea would like to do, however I don’t see many possible solutions.”
So is Braislav Ivanovic on his way out of the Bridge and towards Inter (who seem to have lost out on Thiago Silva to city rivals Milan)? Would Chelsea be worse at the back without him?
