Cesc Fabregas has suggested that his future lies away from Stamford Bridge as he grows frustrated at a lack of game time.
The 31-year-old has made just three appearances in the Premier League this season, with his game time in the league totalling just 16 minutes.
He has, however, been used more regularly in the Blues Europa League campaign, with the Spaniard showing just what he can do in last night’s 4-0 win over PAOK, finishing the evening with two assists to his name.
Despite having spent three years playing in Spain with Barcelona, Fabregas is still the Premier League’s second highest assist maker of all time, providing 111 assists during his spells with Arsenal and Chelsea.
However, despite his creative prowess, he is not fancied by Maurizio Sarri, with the Italian using Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and Ross Barkley ahead of Fabregas.
With his contract set to expire next summer, the Spaniard has suggested that he will look for a new club in the coming months.
“No, I haven’t spoken to anyone.
“Obviously in January I can sign (a pre-contract agreement) with whoever I want and probably this will attract many clubs.
“But so far, from what I can say right now, yes I will stay here until the end of the season.
“I play at Stamford Bridge, I’m happy. That’s the most important thing. But of course every player wants to play more.”
He has been linked with a potential move to AC Milan.
