According to reports coming out of Germany Bayern Munich has made Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic their number one summer priority signing.

Bild have claimed that the Bavarian outfit has been on the lookout for an accomplished defender that trainer Pep Guardiola can use as an alternative right-back Rafinha.

Since first signing from Locamotiv Moscow in 2008 the 31-year-old Serbian international defender has gone on to become one of the Blues most important players, and while Chelsea will do everything they can to keep him at Stamford Bridge the Bundesliga champions will pull out all the stops to try and lure him to Germany in the summer.
