PSG keen on Ivanovic

Paris Saint Germain are interested in signing Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, the Metro understands.

The French champions are looking for a replacement for Gregory van der Wiel, who is reportedly on the verge of joining Inter Milan and have identified the Serbian international as their number one defensive target.

It is thought that they will offer the 29 year old a big-money, four year deal to try and lure him to the French capital, though it appears he favours staying at Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, the Metro also report that the Blues are hopeful of re-signing striker Didier Drogba.

Jose Mourinho is keen on being reunited with the Ivory Coast international, who he signed from Marsielle at the beginning of his first spell with the club.

Drogba, now at Galatasaray, played in the Turkish sides 3-0 friendly victory at Shrewsbury Town on Saturday; a match attended by a number of Chelsea fans who turned up to see their former hero.

Elsewhere, Daniele De Rossi has not been included in the squad for Roma’s pre-season training camp in Riscone, the Mail Online understands.

The 29 year old, who is an £11millon target for the Blues, has been given an extended break following his participation in the Confederations Cup.
