Cesc Fabregas Looks Set To Sign For Another European Giant

Cesc Fabregas would easily stroll into most team's starting line up but for Chelsea the Spanish midfielder often starts on the bench under Antonio Conte. So could he be off in the summer? One European giant certainly wants him.

Looking at the top six there's perhaps only Tottenham who couldn't do with Fabregas in their side, certainly both Manchester clubs showed they were slightly lacking the kind of killer ball that Fabregas can supply.

However the former Arsenal captain has only started 10 Premier League games this season for the Blues, despite his almost telepathic link up with Diego Costa at times, and so he could leave in the next transfer window.

Last summer there were rumours he could leave as he was supposedly unwanted by Conte, his lack of playing time somewhat backs those claims up and it's no wonder that an elite club are being linked with him for the second time.

According to Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport, AC Milan are set to "give everything" in the summer to land Fabregas, a player they enquired about back in January.

In the winter transfer window their chances of signing the Barcelona youth product were scuppered by the ongoing sale of the club to a Chinese consortium but they finally bought the club off Silvio Berlusconi recently.

Now that Sino-Europe Sports Investment Management Changxing have taken over the running of the club they are expected to invest heavily to "transform and even revolutionise" the squad.

Fabregas has scored four goals in the league this season and set up eight goals for the team, not bad considering his lack of playing time for the potential Premier League champions.

Milan are severely lack in midfield and a move for Fabregas makes sense.

After playing for Barcelona, Arsenal and Chelsea already in his career a move to the san Siro would be yet another European giant on his list of teams, albeit a sleeping one.

Will Cesc move to the fashion capital?
