AC Milan and Chelsea agree Fabregas transfer

AC Milan and Chelsea have reportedly agreed the transfer of Cesc Fabregas. The Spanish midfielder will land at San Siro in January.

The news of Giacomo Bonaventura’s injury and the longer than expected recovery time will force Milan to operate seriously on the market. In addition to Lucas Paqueta, who could become a valid substitute for the Rossoneri number 5, the management is willing to make another important signing, with more experience and maturity, always in the middle of the field. In January, coach Gennaro Gattuso needs a world-class midfielder who can guarantee positive performances and quality to the team.

One of the most popular names being linked with AC Milan is that of Cesc Fabregas, Chelsea metronome who has fallen out of favor with new coach Maurizio Sarri. The Spaniard has lost his spot in the starting eleven and wants to change squad quickly. The 31 year old is an old transfer target of the Rossoneri but it seems that finally the right moment has come for Fabregas to grace San Siro.

According to The Sun, AC Milan and Chelsea are very close to completing the transfer of Cesc Fabregas. Initially it was reported that Milan and the agent of Cesc were negotiating a move for June 2019 when his contract would expire and Fabregas would be a free agent. However given the urgent need of Milan to strengthen the midfield the club has decided to move in advance. Milan and Chelsea have agreed a 10 million pounds (about 11.3 million euros) for the transfer of the former Barcelona to San Siro.

Italian media also confirms that a deal is practically closed and AC Milan are discussing the latest details with the player. Great news for the Rossoneri who could use a ductile player of absolute quality. The 31 year old could be deployed as central midfielder, defensive and attacking midfielder. An excellent alternative to Lucas Biglia. Meanwhile, Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri (the last obstacle), has already given his ok to the transfer because he doesn’t consider Fabregas part of his tactical plans.

According to Tuttosport, the purchase of the Spanish star doesn’t mean that AC Milan are about to end their shopping campaign in midfield. In fact, sporting director Leonardo continues to negotiate for Leandro Paredes of Zenit. Leo wants to combine experience with talent in that department and sees the 24 year old Argentine as the perfect fit.
