Monaco expected to sign Cesc Fàbregas next week

The midfielder is out of favour at Chelsea

Cesc Fàbregas is on the verge of joining AS Monaco from Chelsea.

The Spanish midfielder has played just 154 Premier League minutes under Maurizio Sarri this season.

Now, according to L’Équipe, he will finalise a move to Monaco next week.

Currently 19th in Ligue 1, Monaco are managed by Fàbregas’s former Arsenal team-mate Thierry Henry.

AC Milan had reportedly been in the hunt for Fàbregas.

However, it seems the 31-year-old has chosen to team up with Henry again instead.

According to reports last week, Chelsea could allow Fàbregas to leave for nothing to get his contract off of the club’s wage bill.
