Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has opened up on when he will like to leave the club amid talk he is keen to put an end to his three-year stay in January.
The Spain international is one of the players Maurizio Sarri has trusted least this season. He has featured sparingly for the Italian head coach in the Premier League starting none of the 13 games played so far. An injury kept him out at the start of the campaign, but he only played his first league game in October when the Blues beat Burnley 4-0 at the Turf Moor.
He has started two of the five Europa League games as well and looks likely to be let go next summer. However, reports are growing strong in Italy that the former Arsenal star is in talks with AC Milan over a potential move this January.
But Fabregas whose contract expires next summer refutes those claims and maintains he will live out the remaining months on his current deal.
“We have a good squad with a lot of valuable players. I’m at Stamford Bridge and I’m happy, but it’s clear that every player wants to play more.
I haven’t talked to anyone, but it’s obvious that if I haven’t signed a renewal then I can do a deal with someone from January and will probably attract a lot of clubs. Will I stay until the end of the season? For now I can say yes.”
