After Maurizio Sarri took charge of the Chelsea side in favor of Antonio Conte, it seems Cesc Fabregas has lost his influence in the squad.
The former Barcelona star seems to be heading towards the Stamford Bridge exit following the arrivals of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic. Apart from the two newcomers, the former Napoli manager so far preferred N’Golo Kante and Ross Barkley over the experienced playmaker.
According to the UK news outlet, Sports English, the 31-year-old Spaniard is already considering his options, with MLS and La Liga emerging as the most probable destinations.
Although Fabregas played for the entire 90 minutes in the Europa League clash with MOL Vidi, it was only his second start this season next to the one against Liverpool in the EFL Cup.
Fàbregas spots Willian running in behind the Vidi defense and plays a great ball which the Brazilian only needs to lightly flick on into the path of Morata who fires home from close range. He needed that. 1-0. #CFC pic.twitter.com/zzkdTkrSuk

Some recent reports suggested Sevilla and AC Milan are lining up a potential January move, but so far no official confirmation arrived. While the Rossoneri desperately need a player of Fabregas’ quality, Los Hispalenses look like a more likely option, as Cesc already knows La Liga.
