Cesc Fabregas has taken a swipe at his critics by saying that people quickly forget what some players can do.
The Spaniard has not been a regular first choice midfielder under Antonio Conte largely because of the shift in the formation. Chelsea have gone from playing 4-3-2-1 to a 3-4-3 system since September. It is the preferred formation for Conte and the shift has truly paid off with the club managing nine straight victories in the league.
AC Milan manager Vincenzo Montella has ruled out of the possibility of signing Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas since he may not be a great fit for the Italian outfit.
Transfer rumours surrounding the Spaniard have been going around for quite a number of weeks, as it has become clear that he does not figure in the plans of manager Antonio Conte. Fabregas has not been part of the Chelsea starting line-up since the Italian manager took over in the summer. It is a drastic fall in the status of the World Cup winner, although Conte says that he ishappy with the player’s professionalism.
During CescFabregas’ initial 2 seasons as a player of Chelsea, the Spanish midfielder was able to make consistent performances for the Premier League club as he was a regular starter but since have taken a huge turn ever since Antonio Conte arrived to Stamford Bridge.
It appears like Antonio Conte does not have CescFabregas in his plans as the Spanish player has not started in any of the 3 opening league matches of the season for Chelsea. Fabregas did manage to perform for a few minutes during Chelsea’s match against Watford as he came into the pitch in the 2nd half.
Chelsea play maker Cesc Fabregas could be set for a transfer window deadline surprise as reports link him with a move away from Stamford Bridge. Reports in England claim Italian giant AC Milan have inquired from the Blues about a likely deal for the Spain international.
The 29-year old has been constantly linked with a deal away from the club, but he has denied it. Fabregas has continually claimed he would remain and fight for a starting place in the team under Coach Antonio Conte. Much earlier, there were reports that Fabregas was offered to Juventus so he would serve as a replacement for Paul Pogba after his return to Old Trafford.
Antonio Conte has revealed that he has no issues with Cesc Fabregas’ red card against Liverpool in a friendly game.
He has also confirmed that this will not affect his chances of featuring in the first team when the proper season starts on August 13. Fabregas’ form in the last 12 months has come under intense scrutiny. He was a major factor in the club’s title success during the 2014-15 season, but he has been negated by opposition who have marked him out of the game directly. Fabregas has been ineffective in an advanced position, while being even poorer in a defensive role.
Jose Mourinho may make a move for Cesc Fabregas if ever the Spanish midfielder becomes surplus to requirement at Chelsea.
Indeed with the arrival of N’GoloKante who will probably be playing in the defensive midfield position, Fabregas may find it difficult to get playing time at Chelsea. And when you know that the Stamford Bridge side already have players such as Hazard, Oscar, Matic and Willian already in the team, you can understand the dilemma that Conte will be facing when it comes to choosing his midfield.
