Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has decided that Cesc Fabregas does not have a future at the Premier League club and will offload the Spanish playmaker in the January transfer window according to The Express.
The former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder has found first-team action hard to come by in West London following the arrival of the new Italian coach, with N’Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic ruling the roost in the Blues’ boiler room.
As such, speculation over what role Fabregas will play in the Premier League this season has been banded about in the media and the Spain international has had to make do with one brief substitute appearance in 2016-17 to date.

The latest report suggest that Conte has other players ahead of the playmaker in his thoughts and will allow the star to depart from the Premier League club in the new year.
Fabregas is believed to have Juventus and Inter Milan as major suitors, with a move to Serie A potentially the switch he needs to get a stagnating career back on track.
When at his best it is hard to argue with the creative midfielder’s ability, but the Spanish schemer has appeared to be bereft of confidence in the last 12 months.
