The Serbian international has 16 months remaining on his current deal with the Blues, and has been one of their best players this season with some fine all-round performances.

Bayern are keen to improve in defence after some poor performances from Brazilian centre-back Dante this season, and could use Ivanovic in that role as his replacement.
