Cesc Fabregas is STILL not a Monaco player, and Telegraph reporter Matt Law has revealed the reasons why.
Fabregas has already said his goodbyes to Chelsea and travelled to Monaco to complete his move to the Ligue 1 side.
However, though Cesc was under the impression that the move was in an advanced stage and nearing completion, Chelsea have put the breaks on.
The Telegraph believe that is due to the club’s need to secure an adequate replacement before allowing him to leave midway through the season.
Though the report does note that Maurizio Sarri will not be bringing Fabregas back into his matchday squad as he nears the exit door, the move will not yet be signed and sealed.
Nicola Barella and Leandro Paredes are both being considered by Chelsea, but it’s unclear whether either are realistically attainable in January.
Ethan Ampadu is capable of filling in deep in the midfield if worst comes to worst. Cesc has done enough for this club for him to get his desired move in a timely manner.
We hope to see this move go through in the coming days.
