Cesc Fabregas to push for China move

Cesc Fabregas to push for China move

Fabregas to follow Oscar to China?

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas is reportedly prepared to push through a move to the Chinese Super League in January. The 29-year-old has made just three league starts for the Blues, who are currently topping the league standings.

According to The Mail, the World Cup winner is eyeing a bumper wage package with the Asian spenders after it was revealed Oscar would earn a £20m annual salary at Shanghai SIPG - the third highest pay behind only Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Fabregas showed his importance to the Blues in midweek where he netted the winner over Sunderland, but this does not neglect the fact that he has been restricted of a regular starting place.

The former Barcelona man will be the subject of a £40m bid from Guangzhou Evergrande during the winter period, but Conte would do his best to keep hold of his player until the summer.
