Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has not ruled out a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer.

The Serbian international played a key role in Chelsea's victorious Champions League run, but the defender has been linked with a move away from the Bridge, with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Anzhi thought to be interested.

The 28-year-old has four years remaining on his Blues contract, but has not managed to hold down a regular starting place in his preferred centre-half position.

The Serbian star is quoted in the Daily Mail saying: "With regards to speculation about my future, we will see what happens. But whatever happens, it will be between myself, Chelsea and my actual representatives."

An associate of Ivanovic's agent had revealed that the Chelsea defender was keen to see out his Blues contract, but Ivanovic has denied such reports.

"I've seen in the press that an agent called Vlada Borozan has been saying things on my behalf, I would just like to put on record that he is not my agent and does not have the right to tell the press anything on my behalf," said Ivanovic.

Ivanovic joined Chelsea from Lokomotiv Moscow in 2008 and has gone on to win one Premier League trophy, three FA Cups and a Champions League. But Madrid are reportedly keen to sign the Serbian for around £15m, although the Blues are thought to value the defender closer to £25m.
