Chelsea offered Cesc Fabregas to Inter Milan last week, it has been revealed.

While Cesc was linked with a late transfer window move to AC Milan, Gazzetta Dello Sport says the midfielder was also in contact with Inter.

It’s claimed Chelsea included Cesc in their bid for Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic. However, Inter chiefs rejected the proposal, insisting Brozovic was a required player. Cesc appears set for a limited role this season under manager Antonio Conte at Chelsea.

Cesc Fabregas is set to be frozen out at Chelsea this season – despite claiming he has the backing of boss Antonio Conte.

Fabregas denied on social media last weekend that he had told by Conte that he is free to leave the club. But the Spain international is not seen as a first-team starter under Chelsea’s new manager.

Fabregas who was a regular last season under first Jose Mourinho and then interim manager Guus Hiddink, has featured in only two of Chelsea’s four games so far this season and started just one of those.

Contact has been made with a number of clubs in Italy and his homeland without success, leaving the 29-year-old facing up to life as a squad player at Stamford Bridge this season.

The former Arsenal captain’s situation will also have an effect on his international chances.

Fabregas’ long-term future was plunged into doubt when the Blues began seeking new recruits in midfield.

Conte wants more energy in that part of the pitch following the failings of last season, which saw champions Chelsea finish only tenth and sack Mourinho.

Manchester United had been seen as a possible destination for a man who was one of Mourinho’s first signings two years ago as he began building a team that would go on to lift the title. But the Special One has decided against a reunion.
