There has been some reports which have claimed Chelsea are ready to do business with Spanish Champions Barcelona and sell defensive pair David Luiz and Branislav Ivanovic, in a move that would give them £40 million.

There has been a lot of speculation about the future of Luiz in recent weeks, as he is seemingly open to the idea of making a move to Barcelona in the summer despite owner Roman Abramovic wanting him to become the clubs future Captain.

However, Ivanovic has shown no desire to leave and it would be a massive surprise if he jumped ship and headed over to the Nou Camp as well.

Incoming Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has already sanctioned the plan to cash in on the pair so he can raise funds for his own summer spending spree, according to the Daily Star.

Both men have been brilliant this season and it would be strange to see Mourinho get rid of both of them when he makes a return.

But fans will just have to wait and see what happens because until he is appointed manager, nothing will be confirmed.
