Cesc Fabregas may have completed medical at Chelsea

Published 14 Comments

Chelsea are the clear favourites to secure the signing of Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas, with reports claiming the Spain international may have already completed a medical at Stamford Bridge. The 27-year-old midfielder is also wanted by Arsenal and Manchester United, who are believed to have tabled the biggest offer for the World Cup winner.

Spanish newspaper Marca say sources claim Chelsea flew Fabregas to London on a private jet for a fleeting visit around the club last week. If reports are to be believed, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wants Fabregas to replace club legend Frank Lampard, who confirmed that he has played his final game for the Blues in a statement released on Monday.

Barcelona are prepared to cash-in on Fabregas, who rejoined his boyhood club after an eight-year spell with Arsenal in 2011, in order to generate the required funds to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke. It’s believed the Catalan giants are keen to recoup the £35m they paid to Arsenal three years ago, while reports from Spain suggest Manchester United have produced the biggest offer for the classy midfielder so far.

The Red Devils have reportedly made a £34m offer, while Chelsea and Arsenal have submitted offers worth £32m and £29m respectively. Barcelona will sell to the highest bidders - and the club who can offer the most cash upfront.

Therefore, Chelsea may need to up their offer in order to secure the services of Fabregas, who is still considered a hero in the eyes of most Arsenal supporters. His reputation as a Gunners’ legend, however, will be left in tatters if he decides to make the move to Stamford Bridge.
