Chelsea manager Antonio Conte believes Cesc Fabregas is still in his long-time plans also following the rumors over an exit of the Spaniard when the transfer market window reopens in January.
“Cesc is in our plans – Conte said – we all know him on the pitch as a fantastic player but I am starting to know him also as a man”.
The 29-year-old did not start a single Premier League this season so far (he played 90′ only in the Blues’ EFL Cup game against Bristol Rovers) but his new manager has confirmed he is pleased to see his attitude when in training at Cobham.
Then Conte added: “I am pleased to se him with his great behaviors and if he continues in this way it will be very hard to choose the starting squad every week, but this is good for me”.
The Spaniard has been heavily linked with a move to AC Milan this summer and the Rossoneri are said to be keen on bidding for him again in January.
