AC Milan plot triple Chelsea swoop

AC Milan are reportedly holding talks with Chelsea via club director Leonard to ramp in three players Cesc Fabregas, Gary Cahill, Andres Christensen in the winter transfer window.  Cesc Fabregas is the prime man under the Italian side’s radar as they gear up to concentrate on their champions league spot. Gattuso’s side are struggling with injuries after midfield duo Lucas Biglia and Giacomo Bonaventura are injured with the latter is expected to be sidelined until around April, while center-back Mattia Caldara is also on the injured list.

Fabregas’s, 31, contract expires with Chelsea in June 2019. The Spanish midfielder has fallen out of order after the arrival of Maurizio Sarri and is looking to continue his career some new place.  However, Chelsea are aware of the situation and look to cash in on him in January rather than allow him to walk for free. Like his teammate, Center back Gary Cahill, who turns 33 next month, is also going to be a free agent in the summer of 2019, and has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.

Although the Rossoneri are looking for permanent deals for both the veterans, with the restrictions of Financial Fair Play also having a bearing, Milan could look to loan deals mainly in the case of Christensen. Christensen boasts of a young talent who lacks game time. Christensen has previously spent two loan seasons at Borussia Monchengladbach and now looks forward to spending some more time on loan in order to get more game time and improve himself.

Milan’s crisis has increased their need for fresh blood. Both Cahill and Fabregas have equally struggled for chances having made six appearances each whereas Christensen is desperately looking to get first team action whether in Chelsea or somewhere else.
