Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic can join the ranks of the Catalan club during this winter
The Catalans continue searching for a player who is able to strengthen the position of right-back. Earlier it was reported about a possible move of the Juventus player Stephan Lichtsteiner to the Barça’s camp. Though, the Old Lady was to replace the Swiss by Branislav Ivanovic.
Now the information comes out that Barcelona is more interested itself with Ivanovic, who currently lacks a match practice. In the 3-4-3 construction, that Chelsea coach Antonio Conte uses, there was no place for Branislav, as the Italian prefers Cahill – Louis – Azpilicueta trio.
It is worth noting that Ivanovic can’t come at a price to the Catalans, because his contract with the Aristocrats expires in summer 2017.
This season Branislav took part in 8 matches in the Premier League for Chelsea, having passed 1 assist.
