Ivanovic only thinking of Chelsea stay

Branislav Ivanovic is happy to stay with Chelsea under manager Jose Mourinho.

A £9.5million buy from Lokomotiv Moscow in 2008, Ivanovic is now ­hoping to finish his career with the Premier League outfit.

A source close to the player told the Daily Star Sunday: "All being well, Branislav would like to be a Chelsea player for the remainder of his playing days at the highest ­level.

"He is definitely staying at Chelsea. He loves Mourinho's style and is keen to play for the new coach.

"He has been told that he does have a future at the club and, while there was the possibility of him ­going to Barcelona, he is happier staying in ­London."
