Paris St Germain will see if Branislav Ivanovic is going to be a part of Jose Mourinho’s plans for next season by submitting a bid of £8 million for the defender, the Daily Mirror reports.

New PSG boss Laurent Blanc has identified Ivanovic as the man to replace Gregory Van der Wiel, who is set to move to Inter Milan.

Although Ivanovic has been a big part of Chelsea’s squad for a number of seasons, PSG believe that they can sign the defender by offering him improved wages.

It is unknown whether Ivanovic is in Mourinho’s plans for next season and the Portuguese coach could be tempted to let the defender go to PSG for the £8 million transfer fee.

Mourinho could make plenty of changes to Chelsea’s defence this summer, with PSG also reportedly interested in David Luiz.

Luiz would be much more expensive than Ivanovic, with Chelsea valuing the Brazilian at around £30 million and reports suggest that the French Champions could face competition from Barcelona for Luiz.

It is highly doubtful that Mourinho would let both Ivanovic and Luiz leave this summer but the Portuguese manager maybe tempted to cash in on one of them.
