Chelsea will reportedly let Cesc Fabregas leave on loan in January and may even subsidise his wages.
The midfielder has made one start this season in the Premier League and does not appear to be part of Antonio Conte’s plans.
The Times report he could now be set to leave, although only on loan, unless ‘a sizeable offer is received’.
The bigwigs at Stamford Bridge have decided that Cesc Fàbregas’s £160,000-a-week wages are a little overhigh for someone who has little chance of starting a league game.
The Times reports that they came close to letting him join Milan back in August, but couldn’t decide what proportion of his wages they should reasonably offer to continue paying. It is a question they have pondered at length over the last two months, and have now come to a decision. The Times doesn’t know what it is, but interested clubs may apply at the usual address.
