Maurizio Sarri as Chelsea club manager explained that he still needed a Fabregas figure at Chelsea. The coach admitted that Fabregas still had a very important role for the club and he would still retain and not sell the player in the January transfer window.
Fabregas is indeed a figure who is rumored to be leaving Chelsea in the January transfer window. Besides Fabregas, Gary Cahill is also rumored to be leaving the club.
The player’s playing contract at Chelsea will indeed run out at the end of this season. If he does not agree to a new playing contract at Chelsea, it is certain he will become a player on a free transfer in January.
But Sarri seems not to want to sell the player. Because Fabregas is still considered capable of providing power to Chelsea.
“His position is very clear at Chelsea, we only have two players, namely Jorginho and Fabregas, if one of them is lost, then that will be a problem for us,” Sarri told to Sportsmole.
“I want Fabregas to keep playing here, but we don’t know what Fabregas’s final decision will be.”
“For us, Fabregas is a very important and crucial player. If he decides to move, we have to find new players and it won’t be easy. ”
But Chelsea has rules for players who are over 30 years old, namely giving a playing contract with a short duration, ie 1 to 2 years. This is what makes Fabregas think hard to survive or not.
“That is a club rule, we must respect it. As we know, the duration of the contract has always been a problem, especially for players over 30 years, “closed Sarri.
