Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic is reportedly close to a Chelsea exit, and Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has revealed that the 32-year-old is in talks with other clubs.

Speaking in his pre-match interview, the Chelsea manager said: “Now they are in the squad and we will have the training session and after, I see about this.”

“I did not speak with Ivanovic about his decision but for sure we know he is talking with other clubs. Now we have to wait.

“He has played a lot of games for this club and won a lot for this club. He is 32 and he can play for many years, able to continue his career in the right way at the top level, but it is important also to respect the decision, above all for this type of player who is a legend for the club. There arrives a moment If you are not playing when you can make a decision and go to another club, and I have great respect for him.”
