Atletico Madrid linked to Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas

Atletico Madrid are interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas and could sign the Spaniard on a free transfer next summer, say reports.

The 31-year-old is out of contract at Stamford Bridge next June while Diario AS cites a report from the Mirror which suggest Los Rojiblancos may make a move.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder has fallen down the pecking order in West London following the summer arrivals of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic.

Fabregas is yet to feature in the Premier League this season and the FA Cup holders could risk losing him on a free transfer next summer.

Atleti are already well-stocked in central midfield with Rodri signed this summer from Villarreal to replace club captain Gabi, who moved to Qatar.
