Chelsea’s Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas is set to leave the Premier League champions this summer, according to reports coming out of Italy.
Cesc Fabregas’ season went from bad to worse with the sacking of Jose Mourinho, with stories circulating the Spaniard man was behind a dressing room revolt.
The Spaniard has been in below-par form since the turn of the year, and Italian daily Corriere dello Sport has claimed that he’s wanted by a host of clubs in Serie A.
Amid links to a move away from Stamford Bridge, further fuel was added to the fire, as he was subbed in Chelsea’ 2-2 draw with Watford, before not travelling with the the Blues to Manchester for Monday night’s clash against the Red Devils.
Corriere dello Sport’s front page ran with the story that the Spaniard is set to quit Chelsea, with Italian champions Juventus and Inter Milan both chasing the 28-year-old.
The report was vague as to whether or not Fabregas will be leaving the Blues in the upcoming January transfer window, or if he’ll depart in the summer.
Corriere dello Sport believes that Chelsea will command at least a €25m fee for the midfielder, while the player’s pay packet is estimated to be €8m per season.
