The future of Cesc Fabregas reportedly is heading to French Ligue 1 as AS Monaco getting closer in securing the midfielder’s signature.
Media rumors claiming that the struggling Ligue 1 outfit have beaten AC Milan for Fabregas as the Italian are not keen on paying what Chelsea want.
Monaco themselves would be more than willing to pay 10 million Euro transfer fee requested by The Blues for releasing him this January.
Moreover, the French outfit also won’t mind giving a deal until 2022, something that Rossoneri are reluctant as they only prepare a contract until 2021.
Fabregas himself has his contract running out in the summer and can go for free should he doesn’t agree any new deal with the London based club.
Being managed by Thierry Henry, Monaco certainly have that edge in terms of approaching the Spaniard in personal level as both players played for Arsenal in the past.
Milan themselves despite being owned by a financially powerful institution in Elliot are still working to clear their FFP issue with UEFA.
Moreover, considering Fabregas’ contract status and age, the Italian side are not prepare to make over the top financial sacrifice since their management naturally prefers younger players.
It remain to be seen whether this deal between the 31-year-old with Monaco will indeed happen as many things can happen in the transfer market.
