Agent: Ivanovic staying with Chelsea

Published Add your comment

The agent of Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic insists his client will remain at Stamford Bridge, despite reported interest in his signature from Serie A.

Ivanovic moved to west London from Lokomotiv Moscow in January 2008 and has since established himself as one of the Blues most consistent and important performers.

His all-round performance against Napoli last week - in which he scored the winner - highlighted how vital he can be for Chelsea, and it comes as no surprise that other clubs appear to be interested in him.

Napoli, it would seem, are one of the clubs to be keen on the 28-year-old, but his agent believes the 28-year-old will stay with Chelsea for many years.

"I'm sorry that we cannot admire Ivanovic on Italian fields because he was close to coming to Italy twice in the past," Vlado Borozan told Radio Crc.

"My client is an unmovable first-choice player at Chelsea and currently in his head there is only the English club.

"Ivanovic to Napoli? Napoli has become an important side, but I think the deal is not feasible.

"Ivanovic is having a great time at Chelsea and I think his future will be with the Blues."

Meanwhile, Ivanovic had to be substituted in the first half of Chelsea's defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night.

He had been a doubt before the game, and interim Chelsea manager Roberto di Matteo confirmed the full-back was suffering with a muscle complaint.

"It's his thigh muscle, but we'll have to assess him," Di Matteo told the press after the match.
