AC Milan may have turned Chelsea to a ground for recruiting players. First it was Tiemoue Bakayoko and now, reports have indicated that the Seria giants are in talks with the Blues over the signing of Cesc Fabregas, Gary Cahill and Andreas Christensen.
Sarri has changed the method of Chelsea since arriving in the summer and the aforementioned players have been adversely affected, with the Italian manager preferring other players over them.
And according Football Italia, AC Milan football director Leonardo has held talks with Chelsea over potential swoop for some Chelsea players. Chelsea chief Marina Granovskaia has received several phone calls from Leonardo over the imminent deal, with Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas said to be their primary target.
Fabregas is in the last year of his contract with Chelsea and the fact that he has been subjected to a bit-part role means he is unlikely going to sign a new deal with the Blues.
Cahill has surpassed the twilight of his career and Sarri has asked Chelsea to allow him leave in January. He has fallen down the selection of the Blues boss, with Chelsea already looking to sign a player in his stead.
Meanwhile Christensen is young and strong but he is unhappy at losing his place to David Luiz and he reported wants out of the club. Lucas Biglia, Giacomo Bonaventura and Mattia Caldara are all out injured and Milan knows this poses threat to their ambition in the League.
Chelsea are unlikely going to allow up to three of their players leave to a certain club but the January window looks set to be an interesting one.
