Spain international Cesc Fabregas has denied rumours making the rounds from even renowned sport news outlets that he was set to leave Stamford Bridge, Sky Sports say.
The reports claim that the Chelsea player was surplus to coach Antonio Conte’s requirements this term. Fabregas denied the story, claiming his immediate future is assured at Chelsea.
The former Barcelona play maker featured for his club when they played Bristol Rovers in the Football League Cup, but he has only played a game in the Premier League this season. In the game he played, he came on as a substitute against Watford. In the 3-0 comfortable victory over Burnley over the weekend, Conte didn’t seem it fit to add him to the squad when he needed to seal the victory as the opponents were threatening despite being two goals down. Fabregas remained an unused substitute, with Conte sending Pedro, Batshuayi, and Victor Moses to get the third goal.
After the Saturday win, the media was rife with reports that Fabregas had grown frustrated with his lack of playing time, and Conte had told him he could leave if he wanted. The reports were so believable that Fabregas had to take to popular social media platform Twitter to deny the allegations.
“Contrary to what has been written, the manager and I have a good relationship, and he has NEVER told me that I can leave,” Fabregas started in a series of tweets responding directly to the allegations.
“He said that he counts on me, as I count in him. I will continue to fight for this club until the very end and when called upon I will always give my best,” he added. Fabregas reiterated his commitment to the club as well. The former Gunner has had a good career, but might be gliding to an end. He was left out of the Spain squad, but the 29-year old still has power in him before he bows out.
