Chelsea plot shock move to sign PSG wide-man as replacement for Blues legend

Mourinho eyeing surprise PSG raid this summer.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho could make the controversial decision to replace Branislav Ivanovic this summer with a move for Paris Saint-Germain right-back Gregory van der Wiel.

The Premier League champions were unconvincing in their opening game of the season, drawing 2-2 at home to Swansea City, with Ivanovic in particularly poor form.

The Serbian international has been one of the Blues’ best players for many years now, but trusted journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claims he could now be replaced by Van der Wiel.

The Dutchman is a fine defender who is both capable at the back and going forward, though he hasn’t always reached top form in his time at the Parc des Princes.
