The Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern would love to see him stay at Stamford Bridge…
Cesc Fabregas has had a tough start to the season, after being dropped by new Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.
With the Italian set on a midfield pairing of N’Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic, Fabregas seemingly does not fit into his plans – and that has, expectedly, led to reports linking the Spaniard with a move away.
The Football Transfer Tavern has been rife with rumours surrounding a potential exit, with AC Milan touted as a potential destination for the Spaniard.
However, that move now appears unlikely – with AC Milan boss Vincenzo Montella revealing that he has no interest in Fabregas.
He said: “We could use a player with the characteristics of Montolivo, who can also play in a midfield two. The Spaniard [Cesc Fabregas]? [He does] not really have those characteristics”.
It appears that Montella was not watching Chelsea during the 2014/15 season – with the Spaniard firing the Blues to the Premier League title with goals and assists each week whilst playing in a midfield two…
This won’t bother the Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern. The Blues in-house have been desperate to see Fabregas be given a chance – and this might be the opening that they’ve been waiting for.
Our landlord isn’t too sure. He doesn’t think Conte rates the Spaniard – and an extended stay at Stamford Bridge could see Fabregas stay on the bench all season.
