Chelsea started their season yesterday with a last-minute win against West Ham in the first game of the Premier League. The ‘blues’ beat the East London side in the 90th minute thanks to Diego Costa’s goal. Cesc Fàbregas didn’t start the game and there are a lot of voices saying that the catalan might end up playing for Real Madrid.
Cesc Fàbregas doesn’t have a good relationship with his new coach, Antonio Conte. The proof is that the Spanish midfielder didn’t play against West Ham and Cesc could be starting to look for a new club where he can enjoy more minutes.
On the other hand, Real Madrid are still looking for another midfielder, especially if James Rodríguez finally leaves the club. Los Blancos have failed to sign Kanté and Pogba, whereas Sissoko’s signing is also very complicated. For this reason, Cesc Fàbregas could be a good option.
The catalan played 37 games last season in Premier League scoring 5 goals and he’s been a very important player at Chelsea since his arrival in 2014. At the time, the West London club paid €33M to Barcelona, where he played three full seasons. According to the reports, Cesc’s price at the moment is between €20M and €25M.
Real Madrid’s interest for Cesc Fàbregas is not news. Los Blancos showed also some interest back in 2011, when the midfielder joined Barcelona. Fàbregas was raised in Barcelona but he left the club very young to play for Arsenal. He became a star at the Emirates but left Wenger to join again Barcelona under Guardiola’s management. However, it didn’t go as expected and Fàbregas left the club after three years to go back to the Premier League and sign for gunners’ rivals Chelsea.
If Cesc Fàbregas finally signs for Real Madrid, he would be the player number 29 to play in both Real Madrid and Barcelona. The last footballer to do that was Javier Saviola, who didn’t succeed in either of the teams.
