Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas may consider leaving Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, according to Goal.com.
The 31-year-old’s contract expires in June next year, and his representatives have yet to hear back from the Blues about a possible extension, leading to them to reach out to possible interested parties.
Fabregas is not alone with Gary Cahill, Will Caballero and Olivier Giroud all having deals that run out in the summer. David Luiz was also in a similar situation but the Evening Standard have reported today that the Brazilian will be offered a one-year contract extension.
Chelsea remain tied to their transfer policy of only offering year extensions to players who are 30 or over. They have made exceptions with new signings, with Giroud having been offered an 18-month deal last January but it seems that even with Luiz, who is an integral first-team player under Maurizio Sarri, they will only offer another year.
With Fabregas now understudy to Jorginho for the “regista” position in the starting eleven, the Spaniard is understandably planning ahead in case the Blues deem him surplus to requirements.
