£156k-a-week star ready to accept wage cut to complete Chelsea transfer

Cesc Fabregas will be shipped to AC Milan in January, but Fabregas will have to accept a reduced fee for his services.

The transfer window is gradually moving through gears, with many comings and goings set to happen in January.

Chelsea midfielder Fabregas is raring to join AC Milan at the turn of the year, but will see his current wages at Chelsea chopped down.

According to Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, the Spaniard is willing to water down his current wage at Stamford Bridge to push his move through.

Fabregas is among Chelsea’s top earners and it was previously suggested his wage could thwart his move to AC Milan.

Milan has confirmed their interest in the midfielder, fuelling talks of a possible move, that’s likely to happen in January.

Sarri wants the club to hold him down, but Fabregas turns 32 next year, and his chances of staying is too slim.

No contract in on the cards for the 31-year-old, which makes his exit likely to happen in January.

Andreas Christensen and Gary Cahill are in the Milan’s winter shopping list too. It is understood AC Milan are interested in signing the defensive duo, who have seen fewer games this season under Maurizio Sarri.
