- Italian giants, AC Milan interested in Chelsea’s midfielder, Cesc Fabregas.
- Sarri still interested in keeping the Spaniard at Stamford Bridge.
Milan sporting director Leonardo has revealed that his side have made contact with Chelsea over a possible move for Blues midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
Fabregas’ current deal with the club expires next summer but Sarri wants the club to offer the Spanish midfielder an extension.
The player recently revealed that he is yet to negotiate with any other club despite reports of interests from other clubs.
Leonardo speaking about his side’s interest stated:
“We evaluated it, considering the possibility, but didn’t go all in. We are still evaluating the conditions.”
Meanwhile, any possible extension to Fabregas’ contract at Chelsea won’t go beyond a year due to the club’s transfer policy on players above 30. The player currently earns around £160,000-a-week.
Leonardo admitted that AC Milan still had FFP on their minds. He added:
“There could be an economic sanction, we’ll see what happens. We do have a very negative balance sheet. We’ll certainly do something on the market, but we’ll take it slowly.”
“Unfortunately, with the Financial Fair Play issue it has become a puzzle and a difficult one to work out. We need to wait and understand what we can actually do.”
“The owners want to invest, but there are parameters to be respected.”
