Chelsea Midfielder To See Out Season

Chelsea Midfielder To See Out Season

Cesc Fabregas expects to stay at Chelsea for the rest of the season amid speculation he could move on in January.

The 32-year-old former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder’s current contract expires at the end of the campaign and he is permitted to sign a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs from January 1, which would allow him to move in the summer.

Fabregas has found first-team chances hard to come by this term with just three Premier League appearances under his belt – all of them from the bench -and he is unlikely to be offered fresh terms.

AC Milan are among the clubs to have been linked with Fabregas, who joined Chelsea in June 2014 from Barca on a five-year contract.

“No, I haven’t spoken to anyone,” said Fabregas. “Obviously in January I can sign (a pre-contract agreement) with whoever I want and probably this will attract many clubs.

“But so far, from what I can say right now, yes I will stay here until the end of the season.

“I play at Stamford Bridge, I’m happy. That’s the most important thing. But of course every player wants to play more.”
