Cesc Fabregas refuses to rule out a possible transfer away from Chelsea in the summer
Cesc Fabregas has refused to rule out a possible transfer away from Chelsea in the summer despite insisting that he feels loved at Stamford Bridge.
The 30-year-old midfielder has endured a frustrating campaign in Antonio Conte’s first season in charge at Stamford Bridge despite helping Chelsea win the title.
Fabregas found his first-team opportunities at Chelsea to be severely restricted this season and only started 13 Premier League games for the Blues.
However, the Spaniard delivered whenever called upon and scored five goals and made 12 assists for the west London side as the won the title for the second time in three seasons.
Fabregas’ lack of playing time this season has inevitably caused him to be linked with a move away from Chelsea this summer.
And the midfielder did not give any reassurances about his future when quizzed about his situation after Saturday’s FA Cup final.
Asked if he had ever considered leaving Chelsea, Fabregas told the Evening Standard: “Not necessarily, but in football you can never say never.
“Anything can happen but I have always said I feel very, very loved by the fans here and every time I have played I have shown I can play at the top level in this team.
“It is all about trying to change the manager’s decision.
“Of course every player wants to play more, it is in the genes of a winner and I am one of them. I’m here for whatever the team needs and I have shown that during the season.
