Cesc Fabregas joined Chelsea in 2014 from Barcelona, and the Spaniard has proven to be a good signing for the Blues.

After four-and-a-half years at the club and at the age of 31, the former Barcelona and Arsenal player is wondering if his time at Stamford Bridge has come to an end.

Currently, the Spaniard isn’t in Maurizio Sarri’s first eleven, and his contract which runs out at the end of the season is yet to be renewed. Fabregas has even revealed that he hasn’t yet been offered a new contract by the club.

“I’m very open about it,” Fabregas said. “To be the honest the club has not said anything.

“At the end of the day I have eight months left and at the moment I’m gone. But I’d love to stay at the club.

“I’ve been very happy for the last four years and a half. We’ve had great success, won many things.

“I think I have a good understanding with the fans and players. I feel I still have a lot of football left in me but it is now up to the club.”

Although Fabregas is keen to remain at Chelsea beyond this season, he has also revealed that he will love a move away from European football to finish off his career in a few years time.

“Probably in a few years I’d like to go away from Europe and experience something different at the later stage of my career,” he added.

Chelsea now have a strict policy when it concerns players who are 30+, but the club could still give Fabregas a new contract if he proves to be needed at the club this season. Currently, he is behind Jorginho in the central midfield role, and he has given a good account of himself whenever he has been called upon.

Ahead of Thursday’s Europa League clash against Mol Vidi, Sarri revealed that he has been impressed with Fabregas.

Sarri said: “Cesc did very well in the last 30 minutes in Greece and very well for 90 minutes in Liverpool. He has to improve his physical condition of course but he is a great option in this position.

“Cesc is very good in moving the ball, like Jorginho, more than Jorginho, so we don’t need to change the style of football with Fabregas.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
