Chelsea identify perfect replacement for Cesc Fabregas as midfielder near exit

Cesc Fabregas will exit Chelsea next month, despite Maurizio Sarri’s plea to Blues hierarchy to hold off on plans to ship him to another club.

Fabregas has played fewer games under the Italian this term and his lack of games has him winding up his future at Stamford Bridge and moving on to find pastures elsewhere.

AC Milan are in the running for his services and the Serie A club have confirmed they are considering signing the midfielder.

Fabregas will sell for a reported fee of 11 million pounds and the English outfit will splurge the payment for his services to bring in Barcelona and Spanish midfielder Denis Suárez.

Suárez has had shadow appearances for the Catalans, and this term was picked up as a substitute for only one La Liga game this season.

The Spanish international is unhappy and wants to leave Camp Nou. Chelsea have been credited with interest in the star. The 24-year-old former Manchester City player will cost the Blues around 15 million  pounds, if they remain keen in chasing him down until January.

Galatasaray are in the running for Fabregas and have registered their interest in the 31-year-old.

Fabregas has made just four Premier League appearances this season and has only started once.
