Cesc Fabregas joined Chelsea from Barcelona on a five-year contract for a fee in the region of €33 million in 2014. He has been their mainstay in the midfield over the past past four seasons at the club.

The Spain International was pivotal in both the club’s Premier League victory in 2014-2015 season and 2016-2017 season. His vision and passing ranges were one of the important factors upon which the Premier League giants game play was based on.

But the 31 year old struggled for form last season. Despite managing an impressive 46 appearances for the club in all competitions, he was not a regular starter under former manager Antonio Conte.

The midfielder just scored three goals last term, two of them coming in the Premier League. The Blues also finished outside the top 4, missing Champions League football this season.

He even missed out on a place in the Spain World squad this summer due to inconsistent performances last season and was even linked with an exit before the transfer deadline.

Former Arsenal star is yet to feature in any of the Premier League fixtures so far this season under new manager Maurizio Sarri as there is lots of competition in the midfield. His contract will expire next summer and could the leave the club on a free transfer.

Inter Milan and AC Milan wants Fabregas and could be poised to land him, who will be free to talk to clubs after December with his contract running out in June according to Express Sports.

Inter turned their attention towards him when they failed to land Luka Modric this summer but the Premier League giants did not wanted to sell him at that time.

AC Milan are also thought to be keen on the Spaniard and, with club having signed Tiemoue Bakayoko on a season-long loan from Chelsea in the summer and wanting to make the move permanent at the end of this campaign, they are hoping to use that as a bargaining chip.
