Chelsea’s pursuit of energetic and versatile midfielders might make them lose the ones they already have. New reports from Mirror suggest that Mourinho is lining up a deal to bring his former player to Old Trafford. Cesc Fabregas has impressed Mourinho a lot in his time at Chelsea and at Barcelona.
Fabregas was leading the midfield for Mourinho two years back, when they clinched the Premier League title. Both the player and the manager have been a fan of each other. Last season, when Mourinho was sacked in December from Chelsea’s manager job, it was Fabregas who still backed The Special One and claimed that all the players betrayed Mourinho for his trust.
They both enjoy a great relationship, which could see them working together at the Old Trafford as well.
For Chelsea, it is important to keep a hold on a conventional player like Fabregas. His simplicity and traditional approach towards the game might be helpful in a Chelsea side with tireless players.
Conte is chasing players like Andre Gomes, Joao Mario and N’Golo Kante, but what all of them lack is the precision and experience which Fabregas possesses in his boots. It will be a big mistake from the Blues to sell an experienced player like Fabregas in order to make space for young and energetic players.
