Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has been linked with a possible move to current European Champions Real Madrid according to reports from various sources. The Spanish midfielder had previously hinted at intentions for a move to the Spanish Capital and Madrid have also put in a transfer request for the World cup winner. However, recent statementsfrom Fabregas give us the impression that the midfielder is happy at his stint at Stamford Bridge and not considering any move to any other club.
Fabregasinsistshe is ‘very happy’ to stay and fight for a midfield place with Nemanja Matic and N’Golo Kante, but has alsoteaseda tantalising hint at interest from Spain’s most successful club.
Another point to ponder over is the fact that Madrid has enough midfield players in their side already to field an entire team with the strikers and defenders left out and a possible transfer of Cesc to the Bernabeuwill only see him get benched for a considering period of time with Kroos, Modric and Ccasemiro on French Manager Zinedine Zidane’s top priority list for the three-man Madrid midfield.
“I have never thought of leaving Chelsea. Madrid? There might have been calls, there might not have, but I am not thinking of leaving.The rumours over whether I am going or offering myself out tire me. Let them come out every [time]… apparently, I want to go to 20 different teams.‘I am just one player. I will keep competing here. If I knew I wasn’t good enough to play in this team, I would have moved away but I am very happy here.”
