Branislav Ivanovic has no plans to leave Chelsea this summer, according to his agent.

The Chelsea defender has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge in recent weeks, with Serie A side Napoli the latest club reported to be interested in the Serbia international.

The 28-year-old, who is also said to have attracted interest from Spanish champions Real Madrid, recently cooled talk of a move away from Chelsea by insisting he is “very happy” in London.

And agent Vlado Borozan says the defender plans to see out his contract with the Champions League winners.

“Ivanovic extended his contract until 2016 and wants to meet the terms of that deal,” Borozan told Tuttosport.

“Chelsea wants to keep him and he has no plans to leave the club, and I don’t know if his wages would be within the economic reach of Napoli.”

Borozan’s comments come after Ivanovic played down reports linking him with a move to Real Madrid.

“I know what has been written about my future and that Madrid are following me, but now is not the time to talk about this,” Ivanovic told Marca in May.

“I am focused on the national team now and I am very happy at Chelsea.

“I won the Champions League just one week ago and to think about changing clubs now is complicated. I am very happy in London.”
