Chelsea keep hold of at least one of their star players

Chelsea have agreed terms with Branislav Ivanovic, to stay at Stamford Bridge for another year.

Inter Milan and Fiorentina had been sniffing around the 31 year old and the bosses at Chelsea have decided that rather than lose an experienced player, they will offer him a new one year contract.

The Chelsea defender been holding out for a two-year contract when his current deal runs out at the end of the season, but it seems he has agreed to the one year extension.

Chelsea have lost players in the past, like Frank Lampard, by refusing to offer players over 30 anything more than a one year deal and Ivanovic has decided to fall into line with this policy. © 2017 Frontier Theme
