AC Milan looking into January move for Cesc Fabregas

Italian side AC Milan are reportedly considering a winter attempt to sign Cesc Fabregas from Chelsea. The Spain international has been with the west London giants since the summer of 2014 and during this period, he has racked over 180 appearances whilst going on to win the Premier League crown on two occasions.

Despite this, his future has become a topic of discussion with his contract expiring next summer and according to Corriere dello Sport, the Rossoneri are monitoring the player’s developments. It is added that the San Siro outfit have been keen on pursuing the midfielder since his days with Arsenal and they are now hopeful of luring him in January where he will have entered the final six months of his Blues contract.

Fabregas has yet to make a league appearance for the Blues this term and this has largely been associated with a mystery knee problem which has kept him out of action since the Community Shield defeat to Manchester City. During his absence, N’Golo Kante and Jorginho have cemented two of the three midfield spots with Ross Barkley and Mateo Kovacic sharing the third and it appears that the Spaniard could face a tough task of reclaiming a starting role under Maurizio Sarri.

Nevertheless, “ the former Arsenal man has managed to do so in the past under former manager Antonio Conte “ and the next couple of months could give an indication whether he can
“continue to command regular “
gametime with the Capital outfit. Meanwhile, Fabregas’ current deal is due to expire at the end of the current season and talks regarding a probable extension are yet to commence.

Fabregas has previously indicated that he would prefer a two-year contract with the Capital outfit but that appears unlikely to happen, given the Blues follow the strict of offering one-year extensions for players aged above 30.
