Since Maurizio Sarri took over the managerial hot-seat, after Antonio Conte was ousted in the summer, Cesc Fabregas has been conspicuous by his absence from the first team.
The 31-year-old Spaniard has yet to start a Premier League game this season and hasn’t been named in the side for the fixture, against Burnley, this afternoon.
With the Spaniard’s contract set to run out at the end of this season, there have been several column inches generated, by the media, relating to his future.
The latest inference, courtesy of the respected media source, the Express, is that Fabregas could be set for a return to a former club come the summer with our source implying Arsenal could be interested in re-acquiring the services of the midfield playmaker.
If that is the case, it’ll be interesting to see what kind of impact Fabregas would have in Unai Emery’s side, who are fast developing into potential title-winning candidates after a run of fine form.
Personally, I still reckon Fabregas, once his contract is up, or even as soon as the January transfer window opens, will make a return to Spanish football, but that’s just my opinion.
How do you see the future panning out for the talented Spaniard?
