Inter Milan are set to offer Chelsea star Branislav Ivanovic a pre-contract agreement to bring him on a Bosman ruling next summer, according to reports from the London Evening Standard.
Ivanovic only has one year remaining on his current Blues deal and has yet to be offered an extension, meaning that under the Bosman ruling the 31-year-old will be allowed to negotiate with teams outside the Premier League at the turn of the year.
And it seems like his most likely destination could be to Roberto Mancini’s Inter Milan, with the former Manchester City boss keen on bringing the Serbia international to the San Siro.
The former Lokomotiv Moscow defender has struggled for form this season despite being in the PFA Team of the Year in the previous campaign, and is looking for a two-year contract that Chelsea are unwilling to provided to players over 30.
Inter are prepared to offer that deal, and although his agent claims he is likely to remain at Stamford Bridge, the Italian Serie A is a decent option.
“In football everything is possible,” his agent Zoran Krneta said. “The Nerazzurri (Inter) could be interested in him for the summer market and not the winter one.”
