The Spanish champions are in the market for a new right-back as they are planning to offload Aleix Vidal, who is valued at £10 million.

Cadena SER claims that Ivanovic has been approached by Barcelona to find out his availability, and the club believe that a deal could be possible since he is currently out of favour at Stamford Bridge.

Barca are also keen on Ivanovic due to his ability to play at right-back and as a central defender.
