Cesc Fabregas could be on his way to the Serie A as AC Milan monitor his contract situation at Chelsea
Chelsea’s blistering start to the campaign sees them as one of only three teams to still have a 100% record in Premier League. The Blues are coming to terms with Maurizio Sarri’s methods much sooner than expected and this has largely been due to Jorginho’s arrival. the midfield metronome was the lynchpin is Sarri’s Napoli side last term and has continued with his rich vein of form in a different shade of blue. However, his important coupled with that N’Golo Kante means that there is a lot of competition in Chelsea’s midfield. Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Danny Drinkwater have found game time hard to come by. The duo is being linked with a move away from the Bridge every passing day. However, one name that has gone under the radar is that of Cesc Fabregas.
The Spaniard is suffering an ‘unusual’ injury according to his manager. At the same time, he is not expected to break into the starting eleven upon returning to fitness. According to reports in Corriere Dello Sport, AC Milan are keeping tabs on Fabregas’ situation at the Bridge and could make a move his signatures in January. Additionally, the 31-year-old’s contract ends next summer, something that bodes favorably for the Milan side.

Milan have already signed Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko on a season-long with a view to making this move permanent for a fee of £35 next summer. Rosonerri‘s Sporting Director Leonardo is looking to make the most of the cordial relation between both the clubs to facilitate this move.
Fabregas moved to Chelsea in the summer of 2014 much to the chagrin of his former club, Arsenal’s fans. The Spaniard has since made 180 appearances for the Blues, winning the Premier League twice and the FA Cup.
Things look bleak for Fabregas when it comes to securing a position in Chelsea’s first eleven under Maurizio Sarri. The best solution for the former Barca man would be a move to Italy. Serie A has become a perfect stage for the so-called ”elder statesmen” to prolong their career and Fabregas still has a lot to give to the game. Playing under Genaro Gattuso could provide a new start to the 31-year-old’s faltering career.
