Cesc Fabregas’ future at Stamford Bridge is in doubt with the plans former Italian national team coach Antonio Conte would deploy going into the forthcoming season.

The Italian has a huge task at returning the club to winning ways following a disappointing 2015 for the Premier League giant.

There are a lot of reports linking the player’s stay at the club to be coming to an end, especially with the 4-4-2 or 3-5-2 formations that the coach would employ at the club. This means the former Juventus coach will have less need for the player who featured in all but one of Chelsea’s games in the last campaign.

Leicester City’s N’Golo Kante is set to join the club as the Euro 2016 tournament which would have held him back from making decisions over his future is over. The plan for the team would likely be changed leaving only high energy midfielders to start at the midfield. The creative 29-year old has been with the West London club for two years now. He was sterling in the first, helping the club to Premier League glory under Jose Mourinho but he wasn’t even close in the past campaign.

With the style Conte is going to adopt, it becomes very difficult for the player to get any opportunity. When former coach Mourinho was in charge, the player played as No. 10 but has the support of two holding midfielders. With weaker teams, he played deeper despite being short on defensive duties. Conte is known to be versatile and might eventually find a place for the player but he would likely not get as much opportunities and this might lead to the player agreeing to a move away from the club. the pre season would be crucial before the transfer window closes on August 31.
