Cesc Fabregas

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has said that the deal for Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas is “not very straightforward”. The 44-year old feels that his current squad have a lot of central midfielders already.

Cesc Fabregas’ situation at the Stamford Bridge has gone from bad to worse when new manager Antonio Conte decided to snub him from the match day squad for their season opener against West Ham United. Conte have gone ahead with the midifeld pair of Nemanja Matic and N’Golo Kante for their first match of the season.

The 29-year old is expected to leave the Stamford Bridge amid uncertainty over his future with the club. Real Madrid are one of the potential destinations that have been making rounds for the past few days.

Speaking to the press after their win over Reims, Zidane said: “If you want to put another central midfielder into the mix then it becomes complicated.

“Cesc is a great player but it is not very straightforward. I am going to end up with a squad where three or four players do not get selected. To therefore put another player in there makes it difficult.”

The club are looking to find a potential suitor to the player with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus refused to sign him. However, Serie A clubs AC Milan and Inter Milan have expressed their interest in the player. It remains to be seen where the player would end up by the end of the transfer window.
