  • Fabregas confirms he’s unhappy with his role under Sarri.
  • The Spaniard has been linked with a move to AC Milan.
  • Let us know your thoughts on this story @TalkChelsea.

Cesc Fabregas has confirmed his discontent at the role he has been given by Maurizio Sarri this season.

Fabregas became a cornerstone in the starting eleven after signing from Barcelona in the summer of 2014, but that didn’t last long after Jose Mourinho’s departure.

Antonio Conte arrived and brought N’Golo Kante in with him. Fabregas was subsequently used as an impact substitute, an effective one, but little more.

With Maurizio Sarri offering Jorginho the opportunity to follow him from Naples to West London, Fabregas has once again been limited to a bit-part role.

The Spaniard isn’t happy with his playing time, as he has now revealed. Fabregas is quoted by Calciomercato saying:

“I know what my role is, and unfortunately this is not what I want. It is a difficult situation for me. Of course, I play the cups and in the Europa League, I’m not someone who will complain or not do my best, I will always put my face down and work when I’m needed.”

Calciomercato‘s report also notes of interest from AC Milan. They will no doubt be encouraged by these comments.

If Fabregas does decide that it’s time to part ways with Chelsea, he’ll depart having successfully won over the fans and written his name into our history books.
