Chelsea have not agreed a deal to sign Cesc Fabregas

Published 2 Comments

Chelsea have not yet agreed a deal to sign Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

Rumours have been rife in recent weeks regarding Fabregas' future at the Camp Nou, with various reports suggesting that he could be on his way back to the Premier League.

Manchester United have been in hot pursuit of the former Arsenal man since before last season, and were believed to be leading the race for the £30 million-rated man.

However it is now being claimed that the Red Devils' interest has cooled somewhat, which has given Chelsea the chance to pounce.

Reports in Spain claimed yesterday that the Blues were looking to lure him to Stamford Bridge, with Frank Lampard on the verge of signing for new MLS franchise New York City.

The two parties are believed to have met when Fabregas' agent Darren Dein sounded out various Premier League clubs including Manchester United and Arsenal, as well as Chelsea and Manchester City.

However Sky Sports' Spanish football expert Guillem Balague insists that Chelsea haven't got anything concrete wrapped up just yet.

He wrote on Twitter: "He has not agreed anything with Chelsea. His agent did not meet Wenger lately (haven't spoken for a month)"

Balague went on to confirm that Fabregas is likely to be on the move this summer, having been informed by Barcelona that he is surplus to requirements.

The 27-year-old re-joined the Catalan club in 2011 but has had a difficult time of it recently, and was booed by his own fans before the end of the season.

Reports this morning, citing sources close to Manchester City, say the reigning Premier League champions aren't interested in securing his services, while it remains unclear as to where Manchester United stand.
