Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are massive fans of what Antonio Conte has done for them but they’re still not sure over his stance on Cesc Fabregas.
Indeed, the Spanish midfielder has barely played this season and has been tipped for a move to Real Madrid recently by Spanish outlet Diario Gol, once again suggesting Conte doesn’t see him as a long-term part of the club.
The Italian manager has been massively influential in terms of helping Chelsea into their nine point lead in the league with his switch to 3-4-3 proving nothing short of inspirational.
He’s also been brilliant at handling players but many Blues punters feel the club could have been even further ahead by now had the Spanish midfielder played more.
Indeed, when he has played or come on off of the bench he’s usually managed to make something happen and that kind of ability does not come around too often amongst top level players.
Our local Blues will be sad to see him leave, then, and Madrid could be his next destination if he goes.
Thoughts on this one, Chelsea fans? Let us know below!
