English Premier League (EPL) club Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has been touted to leave Stamford Bridge in near future. The midfielder has recently come out in the open revealing his present status at the club and what he wishes to do in his future.
“I’m tired of the news that says that I’m offering myself to other clubs. I’m one more of the team and I will keep fighting to play here.” Fabregas said, as reported by Cadena COPE (h/t ESPN FC)
The 29-year-old Spaniard also revealed that he would have left the club should he felt that he was at no level to feature in the current first-team setup. He has gone on to praise manager Antonio Conte to be a “great coach”. He added that both of them had a conversation and he is happy to play under the Italian manager at Chelsea.
The man from Arenys de Mar, Spain was recently linked with a move away to La Liga giant Real Madrid. When asked about this transfer rumor, Fabregas said that he does not think about leaving The Blues, not even for a second.
The player was recently played by Conte in the EFL cup match against Leicester City. Fabregas played an amazing game, thus helping his team recover from being two goals down to win 4-2 in extra time. The former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder netted twice in the match, according to Sky Sports.
Fabregas may not fit the high defensive, physical gameplay implemented by Conte at Chelsea. However, he does possess amazing talent and has the ability to give something extra to the Blues’ gameplay. He has already shown that in bits and pieces whenever he was played this season.
Should Conte be able to find a specific role for the player in his first-team, Fabregas is certainly capable of doing some intensive damage in the Premier League.
