Cesc Fabregas Plan Chelsea Exit
Chelsea expect Saturday ’s FA Cup third round tie against Nottingham Forest to be Cesc Fabregas’ final appearance for the club as he closes in on a January move to Monaco, sources have told ESPN FC.
Fabregas, 31 , came off the bench in Wednesday ’s goalless draw with Southampton to play his 500 th career game in English club football – and his 350 th in the Premier League – before waving to Stamford Bridge at the final whistle in
what appeared to be intended as a goodbye gesture .
After the match, Fabregas confirmed on social media he will play against Forest on Saturday , but Chelsea believe that will
be his final outing before leaving Stamford Bridge to join Monaco on a cut – price deal as his contract with the Blues expires at the end of the season.
