Chelsea Offer Cesc Fabregas To Juventus

New-Cesc-FabregasAccording to reports out of Italy, Chelsea have offered Juventus midfielder Cesc Fabregas to help fill the hole in the Juve midfielder left by the departure of Paul Pogba to Manchester United.

According to Italian newspaper Tuttosport, the Italian champions approached Chelsea about Nemanja Matic, which the Blues turned down and offered Fabregas instead.

In theory, Matic is a better option for Juve than Fabregas, as the club needs a solid holding midfielder with summer signing Miralem Pjanic more suited to playing in an advanced position.

Fabregas made an instant impression during his first year at Chelsea following his £30m move from Barcelona in 2014, picking up a remarkable 18 assists in his first season at Stamford Bridge

But the Spaniard, along with several members of the Chelsea first team was really poor last season, getting just seven assists last campaign, three of which came in one game, as the Blues struggled to a 10th-place finish.

The 29-year-old World Cup winner failed to make a good first impression with new boss Antonio Conte after being sent off for a reckless challenge in a friendly against Liverpool.

Fabregas is just the latest in a string of Chelsea midfielders to be linked with Conte’s former club, with Brazilian playmaker Oscar tickling the Serie A champions fancy prior to interest in Matic.

Chelsea have put a €45m price tag on Fabregas which seems a little high for 29-year-old midfielder who has struggled to find form for both club and country over the last 12 months.
