Antonio Conte would have been delighted with the start he had to the new Premier League season with Diego Costa’s late strike giving his side all three points on Monday.

The manager would have been relatively happy with the performances of most of the players and will hope that they can continue their performances for the rest of the season.

However, the former Italian boss is still in the hunt for additions to his squad to try and improve the quality and depth to help him in the new season which has seen him linked with a move for a number of star players recently.

But one player who might be on his way out of the club is former Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas.

The Spaniard moved to Chelsea a couple of years ago from the Spanish side and immediately lifted them to a league title a year ago. However, he was not able to repeat his performances in the previous season and was a liability on the side at times in a campaign to forget for the Blues.

And with Antonio Conte splashing the cash on title winner N’ Golo Kante, Fabregas has fallen down the pecking order at the club. He was an unused substitute in the 2-1 victory over West Ham with Conte preferring to play Kante and Nemanja Matic in a midfield role.

This has given birth to rumors that the 29-year old is now up for sale this summer.

Reports have suggested that Chelsea have offered the midfielder to Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG and Juventus for a move this summer.

But it is now understood that none of the 4 clubs are ready to make a move for the Spaniard leaving him stuck with a manager who does not have a place for him in the squad.

And though reports later suggested that Fabregas wants to stay at the Bridge and fight for his place, it is now understood that two new clubs have now entered the race to sign the midfielder.

According to the Star, Serie A giants Inter Milan and AC Milan are both reportedly interested in his signature this summer.

But it is revealed that the 29-year old is not really excited about a move to Italy and that the Italian duo may not be able to lure him this summer. However, if Conte is adamant that Fabregas has no place in his squad, a move to Italy may not look so bad.

Do you think Chelsea should sell Fabregas this summer?
