Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has put the brakes on a move for Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.

Real coach Jose Mourinho has been pushing Perez to splash out for the Serb.

But El Confidencial says the president has ruled out a move over concerns Ivanovic won't be good enough. After seeing Fabio Coentrao flop last season, Perez doesn't want his fingers burned twice over a player he's unsure of.
