Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has emerged as a potential target for both Inter and AC Milan, according to an exclusive report published by the Express.
Fabregas has achieved at Chelsea that he failed to do at Arsenal – win silverware on a regular basis. The Spaniard has lifted two Premier League titles, the League Cup and the FA Cup during his time as a Blue.
Arsenal fans may well believe that they got the best years of Fabregas’ career, but we imagine that his fondest memories will have come as a Chelsea player. It’s been an unlikely pairing which has proven to be a match made in heaven.

As much as it pains us to admit it, Fabregas is not the player he once was. He has the technical and passing ability that he showcased during his youth, but the dynamism he possessed as a Gunner has disappeared.
His time with us could be coming to an end.
According to the Express, both Milan clubs would be interested in signing Fabregas if he were to depart West London. As the report notes, he has less than a year remaining on the contract he signed with Chelsea in the summer of 2014.
It is unclear what sort of fee, if any, we could receive in exchange for Fabregas at this point. He is free to discuss terms with any potential suitors in January, with a view to joining them upon the expiration of his contract in the summer.
This is certainly one to keep an eye on as the months tick away, especially if Fabregas is unable to force his way into Maurizio Sarri’s thinking.
