Cesc Fabregas has spent more of his time on the Chelsea bench this season, and he has only started one league game for the Blues, which was in the 3-0 loss to Arsenal.

Fabregas is among the highest earners at the club, but isn’t part of Conte’s plans and according to The Guardian, the bigwigs at Stamford Bridge have decided that Cesc Fàbregas’s £160,000-a-week wages are a little overhigh for someone who has little chance of starting a league game.

According to The Guardian, The Times reports that they came close to letting him join Milan back in August, but couldn’t decide what proportion of his wages they should reasonably offer to continue paying. It is a question they have pondered at length over the last two months, and have now come to a decision.

Recent reports claim that Fabregas might make the move to the Italian Serie A as soon as January.
