It is reported that Milan are considering allowing Carlos Bacca to join Chelsea in exchange for Cesc Fabregas.
The Colombian forward was heavily linked with a move away from San Siro throughout the summer transfer window but eventually remained with the club.
However, reports have surfaced of a fall-out between the 30-year-old and Rossoneri Coach Vincenzo Montella, prompting speculation that the player will be dropped for Friday night’s Serie A match with Sampdoria.
According to Calciomercato, this has attracted the attention of Chelsea, who are thought to be on the lookout for a striker to compete with Diego Costa.
In return, the Blues could allow Spaniard Fabregas, who appears surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge, to head to Italy where he would be a key part of Montella’s plans.
