Fresh transfer bid expected as Chelsea boss Conte looks to revolutionise key department

The future of midfielder Cesc Fabregas has been a common subject of debate amongst Chelsea drinkers in the Transfer Tavern this season. 

The Spaniard hasn’t been a regular starter since Antonio Conte was appointed manager last summer, dropping down in status compared to his role under Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink.

But the 29-year-old’s influence has increased throughout the season, making two starts since the beginning of April whilst offering a consistent supply of goals and assists from the bench.

According to Mirror Football, however, Conte will listen to offers for the former Barcelona playmaker once again this summer as he eyes an engine room revamp ahead of the 2017/18 campaign – when the Blues are expected to defend the Premier League title and return to the Champions League.

It’s further added that AC Milan will make a fresh bid for Fabregas in the coming transfer window, although the midfielder himself is keen to remain a part of Conte’s plans for next season.

But due to enter the final two years of his contract this summer and no longer a regular starter, Chelsea punters in the Tavern reckon their side will sell if a decent offer comes along.
