Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas is set for a reunion with former teammate Thierry Henry at Monaco.
The Spaniard has emerge as a January transfer target for the struggling Ligue one side. Which will see him team up with former Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry who is currently managing the club.
Fabregas and Thierry Henry played together for five years at Arsenal before the latter departed for Barcelona in 2007, a route which Fabregas also took in 2011.
The 31-year-old joined Chelsea in 2014 from FC Barcelona after former club Arsenal refused to activate their buy back option.
He became an integral part of Chelsea midfield in their Premier League title winning campaign in 2014/2015 season raging up 18 assists in the process. He was also a key part of Antonio Conte squad.
Chelsea’s new boss Maurizio Sarri has drastically reduced Fabregas game time this season. Preferring new signing Jorginho ahead of him. Which has limited him to a total of 22 appearances this season with eight starts in all competition.
Speaking last week Sarri was concern about losing the Spaniard hoping he could stay.
“I want him to stay, I don’t know the final decision of Cesc and the club of course.” Sarri said
“But for me it’s very important and if Cesc will go I think that we need to buy another player, and it’s not easy because, technically, Cesc is a very important player.”
Fabregas has also been linked with other clubs including Italian club AC Milan.
