Reports in the UK say Chelsea are willing to loan out Milan target Cesc Fabregas, and could even subsidise his wages.
The midfielder has struggled for playing time under Antonio Conte this season, starting just one Premier League match.
With the former Italy CT having switched to a 3-4-3, it’s unlikely there is a role for the Spanish international.
The Rossoneri have been linked with a move for him, but it was thought his wages would represent stumbling block.
However, the Times is reporting that the Blues are willing to allow Fabregas to leave on loan in January, and could contribute part of his wages.
Conte wants another midfield player, so letting the former Barcelona man leave would free up space and wages.
