Chelsea play maker Cesc Fabregas might see his time at Stamford Bridge come to an end as he is poised to leave the side when the next transfer window presents itself.
Express Sport reports that the club has made a decision to dump the former Arsenal and Barcelona player in January.
Fabregas has struggled to get first team action since coach Antonio Conte took over at Chelsea. With options like former Leicester City player N’Golo Kante, Nemanja Matic and Brazil international Oscar, the Spaniard’s chance are just limited. The 29-year old has insisted that he is willing to fight for a starting role at the club, rather than leave to get regular action elsewhere.
The news report say Chelsea are willing to listen to offers for the playmaker, but they are unlikely to push him out to any other Premier League club. There were a lot of interests in the Spain international during the summer. AC Milan were keen on adding him to their ranks but it didn’t eventually happen. With the Chinese ready to inject funds when they complete the takeover of the club, Fabregas is on the top of the wish list.
Aside Milan, Juventus are open to getting Fabregas despite the numerous additions to the squad this term. Fabregas is quite popular with the Chelsea fans, so they have been raising concerns as to why he was on the bench even when the team seemed to need him. A section of the supporters are calling for his re-entry to the first team. Chelsea’s good start might have made them keep mum, but with the draw they played against Swansea in the fourth round of games, fans took to social media to vent, asking that Conte let the former Gunner feature again.
