AC Milan have asked Chelsea about a prospective deal for Cesc Fabregas.

The 29-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer, although the Spain international insists he is happy to remain with the Blues.

Earlier this month, reports in Italy claimed that Fabregas had been offered to Serie A champions Juventus as a possible replacement for Paul Pogba.

However, the Rossoneri have now staked a claim to sign the former Barcelona midfielder, who has fallen out of favour under new Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

Fabregas is yet to start a Premier League match under the Italian and has featured just once a substitute, during the 2-1 win over Watford on August 20.

The former Arsenal man was rumoured to have fallen out with Conte over his team selection but Fabregas denies this is the case.

‘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 wrote on social media on Sunday.

‘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 wrote on social media on Sunday.

‘He said that he counts on me, as I count on him.

‘I will continue to fight for this club until the very end and when called upon I will always give my very best.

‘I’m fully committed to @ChelseaFC and my only goal is to help them win football matches.’

Fabregas is currently on around £10million a year at Stamford Bridge but AC Milan hope to tempt the midfielder with an offer of regular first-team football.

Vincenzo Montella’s side have enjoyed a mixed start to the new season and lie in 11th position in the Serie A table heading into the international break.
