Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has been pictured having dinner with Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti in Russia.

Fabregas is in Russia providing punditry as part of the BBC’s World Cup coverage. He’ll be there up until his return to the Chelsea squad to link-up for the start of pre-season training.

His long-term future at Chelsea is very much under the spotlight. He has just one-year remaining on his contract with the Blues, with both Villarreal and Valencia being linked with a move to sign him.

It remains to be seen whether Maurizio Sarri will be able to find a place for Fabregas in his squad. He’s not as mobile and dynamic as Sarri would probably like in the middle of the park, which may leave his future in doubt.

Sarri’s replacement at the Stadio San Paolo, Carlo Ancelotti, is also in Russia. How do we know this? Because he’s been pictured having dinner with Fabregas!

The pair have never worked together before during their professional careers. It’s unclear where exactly they’d know each other from.

With Jorginho set for a summer move to Manchester City, Ancelotti may well be in the market for a new midfielder. Could Fabregas be the man? Only time will tell…
