Cesc Fabregas is being linked with a move away from Chelsea this summer in the Italian press, with Inter Milan and Juventus both interested.
Corriere dello Sport run the story on their front page this morning after it was revealed that Fabregas, who has come in for criticism this season because of his lacklustre performances, won't feature against Manchester United this afternoon having not travelled with his team-mates.
Chelsea say that the Spaniard has come down with the flu, but having been the target of anger from Blues' fans, especially in the wake of Jose Mourinho's exit earlier this month, speculation has started over his future in west London.
The Telegraph claim the illness suffered by Fabregas, who was subbed off during the draw against Watford, "comes on the back of a turbulent run of events" which saw him booed during Chelsea's win against Sunderland - the first game after Mourinho's departure.
Now the Italian newspaper say that both Inter and Juventus are monitoring events at Stamford Bridge, and could offer him a way out of Chelsea in the summer.
Corriere dello Sport go as far as to say that Fabregas will look to quit Chelsea, who will demand at least €25 million for the midfielder.
Fabregas has also faced more trouble off the pitch after he threatened to sue BBC pundit Pat Nevin, who allegedly claimed the former Arsenal man would rather lose a game than win one for Mourinho. However Fabregas confirmed this week that he's received an apology and has dropped the complaint.
Chelsea are facing more problems ahead of their game against Manchester United today, with Diego Costa suspended and Eden Hazard not fully fit. Interim Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink said: I could complain a lot but that’s not my nature. We have to go on and find a solution as soon as possible. But it is a setback [losing Costa], it’s true.”
