The former Arsenal and Barcelona midfield maestro can negotiate with non-English clubs from 1st January 2019 after the Blues made it known they would not renew the Spaniard’s contract.
According to the Spanish news outlet, Fabregas is looking to leave the Premier League with his chances of first-team action severely restricted under Mauricio Sarri. Since the Italian took over at Stamford Bridge, Fabregas is barely on the periphery of the squad. Just five league appearances this season with nine in minor cup competitions underline how far Fabregas dropped in West London.
A surprise destination for Fabregas might be Monaco, where Cesc’s former Arsenal team-mate Thierry Henry is slowly making headway with the Monegasque. In nine games he accumulated seven points to Leonardo Jardim’s six in the same number of matches. If the former Arsenal striker can persuade Fabregas to join him, there is a strong possibility of turning Les Rouges et Blancs season around.
Is Fabregas ready to take on a challenge at the start of the New Year or content to see out his Chelsea days on the bench?
