Branislav Ivanovic’s future at Chelsea looked increasingly suspicious since the defender had only a few months left on his contract.
However, he has now signed a 12 month extension with the London outfit meaning that he will be at Stamford Bridge until the end of the 2016-17 season. Ivanovic has been a permanent fixture in Chelsea’s first team over the last few years. Few would have imagined his astronomical rise since joining the club in a £ 9 million deal from Lokomotiv Moscow in 2008. Ivanovic has already won every major title with the West London outfit and is now looking forward to another period of glory.
