Real Madrid reportedly want to add a central midfielder in the summer and a move for Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas ‘isn’t impossible.’
Fichajes.net claims that the former Barcelona player is on Madrid’s shortlist with extensive changes expected at the end of the season, joining club colleague Eden Hazard and Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski as mooted targets.
It’s alleged Fabregas isn’t on good terms with some of his teammates and that could lead to him being open to returning to Spain, though Fabregas has strenuously denied having any influence in the departure of Jose Mourinho.
Chelsea may also be open to the idea of selling Cesc in order to get a substantial fee for his services, as if the transfer were to wait much past the summer, his value would drop as his contract expires.
Playing for Madrid would be a ‘moral dilemma’ for Cesc, it’s suggested, but Florentino Perez could make the offer to the Catalan ‘irresistible.’
It’s pointed out that Cesc signed for Chelsea despite having captained London rivals Arsenal, with a parallel drawn to the notion of playing for Madrid after having been on Barca’s books.
The offer of a La Liga return is arguably the strongest attraction and Madrid will do what they can to push through the transfer that Fichajes say ‘isn’t impossible.’
