Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has confirmed Cesc Fabregas ‘has an offer for two years’ and this is the reason why ‘he needs to go’ in the January transfer window.
It is understood the Spaniard is contracted at Stamford Bridge until the end of current season.
The Italian boss told journalists: “You know very well the situation. You know very well in this club there is a rule: the renewal of players over 30 is usually one year.
“He has an offer [from AS Monaco] for two years. I don’t want a very important player as Cesc unhappy.”
Then Sarri added: “If Cesc will go, of course we need a replacement. Now, with the midfielders we are in trouble, I think”.
“Without Cesc we have only five, so we are in trouble. We need a replacement.”
Maurizio Sarri, when asked if whether Cagliari starlet Nicolò Barella or Zenit St.Petersburg ace Leandro Paredes could be proper replacement of Fabregas, refused to speak about ‘players of other teams’.
