– According to the rumours Conte want to sell Fabregas
– Reportedly the star is also trying to find a new club
– Chelsea manager reacts to the rumours
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has commented rumours that Chelsea are ready to sell the midfielder in the January transfer window.
According to Sport , the Chelsea midfielder wants to leave the Conte’s side.
Goal reports that the player’s representatives have already contacted Real Madrid about a potential move. Recall that Fabregas was left on the bench as Conte preferred Nemanja Matic, Oscar and N’Golo Kante.
This season Fabregas has played just 26 minutes in four Premier League games.
Sport stresses that despite growing up in Barcelona and later returning to the Catalans at first-team level, Fabregas wants to join the club’s arch-rivals.
SportItalia is reporting that the 29-year-old has been offered to Milan but Sky Sports counters that report saying Fabregas wasn’t offered to Milan, and in fact the Rossoneri got in touch with Chelsea.
However, Conte reacted: “No [we are not considering selling him]. Fabregas is in my plans. We all know he is a fantastic player. Cesc is a great player.”
He stressed: “He is training well and making team selection difficult for me.”
