Turkish giants Fenerbahce are ready to make a January bid on Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas. The Spanish midfielder has also caught the interest of Italian side AC Milan, bit it are the Turks who are currently leading the race, Turkish reports suggest.
The 31-year-old is ready to leave Chelsea in January as he is getting very little playing time under Maurizio Sarri. Fabregas’ contract is expiring at the end of the season and there has been no indication that Chelsea will offer a new deal. Fabgregas had been at Chelsea since the summer of 2014 in a €33M deal from FC Barcelona.
Milan have been interested in Fabregas since the start of the season, but they are limited by Financial Fair Play parameters. Milan are only able to sign Fabregas if he joins them as a free agent, meaning he must either terminate his contract by mutual consent or join them on loan until the end of his contract.
While Milan are hoping to land Fabregas on a free transfer, Fenerbahce are ready to make a bid on the midfielder in January. According to reports in Turkey, president Ali Koç is currently in London for negotiations with Chelsea. Fenerbahce are struggling this season in the Turkish Süper Lig and are currently in 17th position with 16 points from 17 games.
