Jose Mourinho has decided to axe Bastian Schweinsteiger at Manchester United, Pep Guardiola is expected to sell Joe Hart with Claudio Bravo on his way to Manchester City, while Antonio Conte, it seems, is about to call time on Cesc Fabregas’ Chelsea career.
The Spanish midfielder was an unused substitute in the Blues’ 2-1 win over West Ham at Stamford Bridge on Monday night, with Conte instead preferring a more industrious midfield comprised of Nemanja Matic and summer signing N’Golo Kante.

Juventus have already spent most of the money generated from the sale of Paul Pogba on striker Gonzalo Higuain, but there might be a little left in the kitty for Fabregas.

If Fabregas wants to continue earning mega money, then a move to the oil-rich French champions Paris Saint-Germain is probably his best bet.
Unai Emery may feel his compatriot could help land PSG their first ever European Cup.
