Are we witnessing the end of the Chelsea career of Cesc Fabregas?
It’s an interesting question and one which could be answered very soon.
With the January transfer window set to swing open, speculation is mounting that the man who wears the magic hat is destined for an Italian career swansong.
Our associates, over in Italy, Calciomercato, are running with the inference that the 31-year-old is looking at a move to AC Milan with our referenced source implying talks have already begun.
Fabregas has only had a peripheral role, in the first-team, this season being introduced as a substitute when Jorginho has begun to tire.
The Spaniard is at the stage, even more so with his contract situation, whereby he wants regular first-team football.
Personally, I doubt whether Chelsea will stand in his way if AC Milan are serious about acquiring his services, but it remains to be seen whether his departure occurs this January or in the summer.
