Cesc Fabregas is believed to be open to joining Milan, but Chelsea will try to convince him to stay.
The Spaniard is out of contract at the end of the season, and while Coach Maurizio Sarri wants him to stay, the midfielder wants a longer contract than the one on offer.
The Rossoneri have been heavily linked with a move for Fabregas, and calciomercato.com reports he’d be happy to move to San Siro.
Technical director Leonardo is waiting though, as Sarri wants a replacement in January and owner Roman Abramovich may intervene personally to try and change the player’s mind about leaving.
There is also the issue of Tiemoué Bakayoko, who is on loan at Milan with a €40m option to buy.
The Diavolo are willing to pay around €8m for Fabregas in January, but that’s below Chelsea’s asking price of €12m.
The Premier League side may offer a discount, but they would first demand clarity on Bakayoko’s future, as it’s far from certain the Rossoneri will sign him outright.
