Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has grown into one of the important numbers at the club, which seemed unlikely after making a £ 9 million move in 2009.
He rarely featured for the first-team immediately upon his arrival. It was then suggested that he may return back to eastern European football. His breakthrough at the club came under Ancelotti and he has never looked back since. Ivanovic comes on the back of a brilliant campaign with Chelsea and it saw him lift the second Premier League title in his career. After having won the league title for the first time since 2010, Chelsea will be hoping to retain the trophy next season.
