Chelsea full-back Branislav Ivanovic could be handed a new role at Stamford Bridge next season because of incoming Atletico Madrid star Filipe Luis, according to The Daily Mail.

The Blues appear to be closing in on a £19.4 million move for the Brazilian star, and it now looks likely that Blues boss Jose Mourinho will make him his No.1 left-back at Stamford Bridge with Cesar Azpilicueta taking up the right-back role at the club. 

Serbian ace Ivanovic may well have to battle it out for the centre-half position at the club. The Blues defender could take over from PSG bound David Luiz and could battle the likes of John Terry, Gary Cahill and Kurt Zouma for a starting berth in the 2014/15 campaign. 

It remains to be seen, however, as to whether the Chelsea boss can tie up a deal for Luis anytime soon. Chelsea certainly look set to take his teammate Diego Costa to The Bridge in the immediate future, after it was reported that the Spanish international had passed a medical at the club ahead of a £32m switch. 

Blues fans will certainly be excited ahead of next season as they look to improve on their third placed Premier League finish from last term.
