Chelsea let Fabregas go

Chelsea let Fabregas go

London Chelsea are unloading midfield after the summer purchase of a number of footballers for the position. Bakayoko was the first one to leave the club and now playmaker Cesc Fabregas may also depart.

From the middle of last season, Fabregas experienced problems with getting into the team line-up even under Antonio Conte. The arrival to the team of Maurizio Sarri and his main hope Jorginho completely killed the Spaniard’s ambitions. The Italian put Jorginho to the defensive zone, lifted Kante a bit higher and put Kovacic from Real as their partner. The Croat have claimed numerous times that he wants to stay at Stamford Bridge, having gained understanding here.

Besides, Fabregas is 31 years old and that means that he is not the one to have high hopes for in the future. The peak of his career was at Arsenal and only partially at Chelsea, when in the first half of the season he made more than ten assists. Now the problematic Monaco, managed by Thierry Henry, is after him.

The Frenchman is familiar with Fabregas firsthand from their past at Arsenal. The Monegasques have agreed with the halfback about the contract of two and a half years and the signing bonus will be about ten million euros, Get French football News with reference to L’Equipe reports.

Apart from Monaco, Milan also followed the footballer. Rossoneri already took Bakayoko on loan, therefore, the contacts with Chelsea management are arranged. However, the Milanese team has asked for a free transfer because of financial fair-play problems. The Club management informed Fabregas that they will invite him, if he terminates the contract with the Pensioners or persuades Chelsea to let him go on loan.

The midfielder has appeared five times on the pitch this season in the EPL, earned one yellow card and was not noted for any efficient action. The average time of Fabregas’ presence on the pitch is 31 minutes per match. Therefore, the transfer looks like a logical redemption of the footballer’s playing time.
