Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas is keen to negotiate an extension on his contract, the Standard reports.
The Spaniard currently has 18 months left on his current contract. At the age of 30, the club may only be willing to offer Fabregas a one year extension because of its 30 and over policy.
Upcoming opponents Manchester United declared an interest in signing Fabregas earlier this week, the Daily Star reported. However, those reports have been dismissed and the player’s future is still at Stamford Bridge, as the Standard reports.
Fabregas is quoted by the Standard saying:
“This is a fantastic club for me and I have had a fantastic time here. Hopefully another contract will happen. Time will tell.”
Fabregas has achieved great things with the Blues, winning two Premier League titles along with League Cup success.
It’s unlikely that fresh contract talks will happen soon as the club may wait till the end of the season to discuss his position in the team.
Hopefully, a contract does get wrapped up as despite some poor performances this season, Fabregas is still technically a great player. The experience he offers is also vital for players like Andreas Christensen and Charly Musonda.
Let’s hope the man with the magic hat can produce the goods against United on Sunday.
