Chelsea playmaker Cesc Fabregas says he is not worried one bit about his age. The aging midfielder has been in the spotlight for long. He started out early at Arsenal despite being a product of the popular La Masis academy. He became a leader at a young age until he went in search of trophies at the Nou Camp. He returned to England where he has been prolific at Stamford Bridge.
The Spanish star has a year left on his deal but there are no talks yet for an extension. If talks begin, it would likely not be more than a year addition. At 30 years, Fabregas might soon start slowing down but he has dismissed such thoughts.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has told Cesc Fabregas that he wants him to improve the defensive side of his game.
He said that the player is a great playmaker and that he is an instrumental player for Chelsea when going forward but he needs to improve a lot when it comes to winning the ball back.
He said that the player will have to learn from his midfield partner Kante and that he will have to contribute defensively to the team.
Antonio Conte said that Fabregas had been an important player so far this season as he is the one creating chances in the absence of Hazard. He said that there is no doubt that Fabregas is a great offensive midfielder, but there are games where he will be required to tackle a bit more. He said that it is on this aspect of his game that he wants him to work on. Continue reading Conte wants Fabregas to improve
Ray Wilkins just like Cesc Fabregas also rates Eden Hazard highly and reckons that there is not a big difference between him and Lionel Messi if one compares the sheer footballing skills of the two players.
Wilkins reckons that it can’t be said at this stage that Hazard 100% matches Messi as a player, but, the Belgian is surely there and thereabouts and is not lying behind by a big margin.
Fabregas had recently suggested that apart from Messi, there is no other player in the world who has got more potential than Hazard, but, the only problem with Hazard is that he is not as selfish as he should be.
According to Fabregas, rather than finding the net himself, Hazard tends to make opportunities for the others to score and that is why, he has not been able to make as big a name for himself as he could have.
Fabregas revealed that he had advised Hazard to get a little selfish on certain occasions and try and register the goal to his own name rather than just assisting it because it’s the number of goals only which would get him into the list of elite footballers.

There are reports that Manchester City might make a move for Chelsea and Spain midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
The midfielder has already played under Pep Guardiola at Barcelona and might be interested in meeting with his former manager again.
Manchester City who has failed to win a game for 5 matches now are looking for players that can strengthen the team. It is believed that Pep Guardiola wants to sign Cesc Fabregas who seems to be unsettled at Chelsea. The player has failed to adapt to Antonio Conte system and seemed to be only a fringe player for the Chelsea team.
Cesc Fabregas will feel that moving to Manchester City can provide him with more playing time and give him a career boost.
However, some pundits believe that Cesc Fabregas is not the right player for Manchester City. They believe that the team needs defensive reinforcement and that Fabregas is not really a defensive midfielder. Continue reading Fabregas to City

Manager Julen Lopetegui released his first invitation to players this week as Spain is trying to restore itself as the best after their 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016 stumble.
Spain were a real dominant force with their talented player and unique style of play from 2008-2012. They won the 2010 World Cup, and Euro 2008 and 2012. Lopetegui has been handed a critical task of returning the country to winning ways. Hence, the start is to get the best players to feature in games. He decided to leave out Spain’s most capped player in Casillas. Casillas has 167 caps for Spain, while Fabregas has featured 110 times for his country.

David de Gea is set to appear in goal, as he did during the tournament in Brazil. Adrian of West Ham and Pepe Reina of Napoli are the spare goalkeepers.

Former Chelsea and Spurs defender Graham Roberts condemned the comments of Chelsea players, Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas for their open comments on who they prefer to lift the English Premier League this season.
He described the comments about wanting Leicester City to win the EPL title over Tottenham Hotspurs as “ridiculous” and unprofessional.
Chelsea face Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Monday before hosting Leicester on the final day of the season, meaning that last season’s Premier League title winners could yet have a big say on the destination of the trophy this time around.
Eden Hazard after the 4-1 victory over Bournemouth last weekend said that “the fans, the club and the players” want to see Leicester edge out Tottenham in the title race. On the other hand, Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas had earlier revealed that he too would be rooting against Spurs most likely due to his links to the emirates where he played for years.
The comments angered many as it led to suggestions that Chelsea might deliberately lose to Leicester in order to deny Tottenham the title and undermine the integrity of the Premier League and the Chelsea coach had to come out to deny the suggestions.
“You can think it but you don’t need to say it. Continue reading ROBERTS CONDEMN FABREGAS AND HAZARD’S COMMENTS
