For the first time since 2008, the Chelsea FC squad will not have Branislav Ivanovic in it as their hopes of winning the Premier League title will be tested on Tuesday night when the Blues take on Liverpool at Anfield.
The 32-year-old defender who has been rumoured to leave the club for some time, is on his way out of Stamford Bridge.
European clubs, Zenit St Petersburg and West Brom were chasing his signature, while rumours spread that Ivanovic preferred staying in the Premier League than moving back to Russia.
Regardless of whether that’s true, on Tuesday afternoon, Ivanovic was pictured in Russia having landed ahead of his move to Zenit.
While it’s far to say that Ivanovic is no longer the player he was, he’ll go down in the Chelsea annals as a legend.
During his time with the Blues he won the Premier League twice, the FA Cup three times, the League Cup once, the Champions League once and the Europa League once.
