Branislav Ivanovic's future at Chelsea is once again up in the air after he rubbished quotes which were wrongly attributed to his 'agent'.

Ivanovic said in May that he thought Real Madrid were tracking his progress, which led to speculation he could quit Stamford Bridge over the summer.

Those rumours were apparently quashed when Vlada Borozan made comments to the media declaring Ivanovic was happy with life in West London and had no intention of leaving.

However, it has now emerged Borozan is not Ivanovic's agent, and the Serbia international has left the exit door slightly ajar for Real Madrid.

"I've seen in the press that an agent called Vlada Borozan has been saying things on my behalf, I would just like to put on record that he is not my agent and does not have the right to tell the press anything on my behalf," Ivanovic told Sky Sports.

"With regards to speculation about my future, we will see what happens. But whatever happens, it will be between myself, Chelsea and my actual representatives. As it stands today, I am a proud Chelsea player.

"I have four years remaining on my contract, have just won the Champions League, just captained my country on international duty, and am now ready for a holiday with my family to recharge my batteries and get ready for next season."
