Euro giants planning transfer battle for Chelsea star

Posted by

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas could be set for an exit from Stamford Bridge, with both Juventus and Inter Milan both keen on the playmaker.

According to the Corriere dello Sport [via the Daily Mail], both of the Serie A heavyweights are keen on signing the experienced campaigner, who has been far from his best this season.

The Spaniard—who won the World Cup with La Roja in 2010—was in and out of the side during the final throes of Jose Mourinho’s reign, and was—along with Diego Costa—booed by Blues fans ahead of the club’s victory against Sunderland, the first match since the Portuguese manager’s dismissal [Sky Sports].

While he was influential during the 2014-15 season, as Chelsea won the Premier League, the former Arsenal and Barcelona man may not be long for Stamford Bridge.

Juventus are still seeking for a long-term successor to Andrea Pirlo, who left for Major League Soccer during the summer, while Inter Milan—currently managed by Roberto Mancini—sit atop of the Italian top flight, and may see Fabregas as able to offer the kind of experience and big-name nous to see the Nerazzurri to their first Italian title since 2010.
