Chelsea are flying out of the traps in terms of their summer transfer business.
With one of the best strikers in Europe already in the bag, in terms of Diego Costa, Jose Mourinho seems to have turned his attention to midfielders.
It’s been all over the news this week that Gerard Pique let slip that his team mate in the Spanish national side, Cesc Fabregas, is apparently on his way to another club this summer. And all of the rumours point to Chelsea as that club.
With Frank Lampard leaving the club it looks as if this one is potentially in the bag. Talksport reported:
Cesc Fabregas has agreed a deal to join Chelsea, talkSPORT understands.
And even Jose Mourinho has confirmed their interest in a player who had a sparkling career in The Premier League before joining Barcelona.
On the Spanish midfielder, Mourinho said: ‘We have some (interest in Fabregas). I have interest in analysing the situation.
‘It looks like he’s really interested in leaving Barcelona, and is very interested in coming back to England. This is clear.
It’s hard to see Fabregas not being a success at Chelsea. He can provide the ammunition for Chelsea’s flyers like Eden Hazard and Willian and also chip in with a decent amount of goals.
At 27 he’s in his camp but can also give Chelsea another five years of top service if he joins.
Let’s see the quality of the lad in action. Chelsea fans is this the guy to fill the hole left by Lampard?
