Chelsea star verbally agrees deal with Italian giants
According to reports,Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has verbally agreed to join Italian giants AC Milan. The Spain international signed for the Blues in 2014 and played an important role in helping them to win the title. But it was followed by a disastrous campaign last season and now he has fallen out of favour with new Chelsea boss Antoni Conte.
The 29-year old was linked with the Italian outfit throughout the summer and it seems that the deal will materialise in January as according to Italian news outlet Calcio Mercato, negotiations between Chelsea and Milan have progressed significantly in a positive direction. The report claimed that after several days of talks, both clubs have reached a verbal agreement for the transfer of the 29-year-old. The report suggests that the midfielder could join the San Siro outfit on a loan deal worth in the region of £2.5 million. And Milan could also buy the playmaker permanently if some certain clauses in the deal are met.
Fabregas refused to leave Stamford Bridge during the summer and vowed to fight for his place but his position at the club has only deteriorated since then and a move away from the English giants will be the best option for his career.
Any chance of him reviving his career at Stamford Bridge was over after the arrival of N’Golo Kante from Leicester City and Nemanja Matic agreeing to stay at Chelsea has seen Fabregas falling down the pecking order. The world cup winning player has not started a single game for the Blues this season and is in danger of being frozen out if he does not leave the club.
Milan boss is reportedly a big admirer of Fabregas and he wants him at the club to provide the much-needed leadership in the midfield as he looks to rebuild the Milan team.
