Chelsea eyeing winter deal for €30m-rated WC winner

Chelsea and AC Milan are reportedly looking into a winter agreement deal for the transfer of Cesc Fabregas. The Spain international has been with Chelsea since the summer of 2014 and during this period, the Spaniard has netted 180 appearances in all competitions.

Despite, Fabregas’ long-term future with Chelsea remains uncertain with his current contract expiring at the end of the season and as reported by Italian news outlet Corriere dello Sport, Milan may seek to take advantage of the situation.

It is added that Milan have been trying to pursue the signing of Fabregas since he’s been with Arsenal and they could be prepared to make a fresh attempt when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

The Spaniard is yet to register a league appearances for Chelsea since the start of the season and this has largely due to him suffering a mysterious knee problem which has kept him out since his cameo in the Community Shield.

In Fabregas absence, Maurizio Sarri have firmly established Jorginho and N’Golo Kante in two of the three midfield positions while it also appears that Mateo Kovacic has sealed the third after making starts in each of the previous two league games.

As such, the €30m-rated World Cup winner chance looks more in doubt with Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley present to provide additional competition but he could yet surprise the doubters by winning over a starting role just like he did under ex-boss Antonio Conte last term.
