Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has been linked with a January move to AC Milan but he expects to stay at Chelsea until the end of the season.
The 32-year-old’s current contract expires at the end of the season and he is permitted to sign a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs from January 1, which would allow him to move in the summer.
AC Milan are among the clubs interested in signing Fabregas and they are reportedly preparing a January move for Fabregas.
However, Fabregas insists he won’t leave Stamford Bridge while also revealing he wants to play more.
“No, I haven’t spoken to anyone,” said Fabregas, when asked about his future following Thursday’s 4-0 Europa League win over PAOK.
“Obviously in January I can sign (a pre-contract agreement) with whoever I want and probably this will attract many clubs.
“But so far, from what I can say right now, yes I will stay here until the end of the season.
“I play at Stamford Bridge, I’m happy. That’s the most important thing. But of course every player wants to play more.”
Fabregas has won two Premier League titles since joining Chelsea from Barcelona in 2014 and the arrival of Jorginho from Napoli has limited his Premier League opportunities to just three substitute appearances this season so far.
