AC Milan aim to beat Juventus for Chelsea's Ivanovic

AC Milan are aiming to trump Juventus for Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.

Juve have already approached Chelsea with an offer for the Serbia international. However, Milan are currently looking for a defender to act as cover for Alessandro Nesta in an ageing and injury-prone back line.

According to Sportmediaset, Milan are ready to move in with a bid of around £1.8m to take Ivanovic for the season with an option to make the deal permanent next summer.
