Branislav Ivanovic happy to become Chelsea team-mates with Luis Suarez
One of the abiding memories of last season’s Premier League campaign saw Luis Suarez sink his teeth into the arm of Branislav Ivanovic, although there is no grudge on the part of the Serbian.

Perhaps Ivanovic is aware that Chelsea are in the hunt to sign the Uruguayan this summer, with the bookmakers offering 8/1 that the striker switches from Anfield to Stamford Bridge before the transfer window shuts.
Either way, the defender claims that the incident is now water under the bridge and also played down rumours concerning his own future, with PSG and Monaco both apparently keen to sign Ivanovic.
“About Luis Suarez, I said straight after the game, whatever happened on the field finished there,” Ivanovic said in Bangkok on Tuesday.
“He’s one of the best strikers in the Premier League. I don’t have any problem with him.
“My situation, I’ve always said I’m happy to be here.
“I will do everything and will work hard to do everything for the club. Nothing will change until the last day I’m here.”
Suarez was banned for ten matches following the Ivanovic biting incident, with the player now apparently keen to leave Anfield, although managing director Ian Ayre is confident that Liverpool can still retain his services.
