Antonio Conte: “Fabregas? he’s in good shape and he’s staying”

By Isak Möller -

It looks like Milan and Inter are set to be disappointed in their quests to recruit Oscar and Cesc Fabregas.

The two Serie A clubs are very enthusiastic about recruiting the two Blues, who are playing diminishing roles at Stamford Bridge.

Ever since Coach Antonio Conte moved the Pensioners to a 3-5-2 formation, both midfielders have found themselves marginalized. While the Brazilian began the season as a starter, Fabregas has only managed four games from kickoff. Neither has scored in league play so far.

And yet, ironically, it is Conte who has put paid to the notion of the two players leaving London this summer. “Oscar’s future is at Chelsea, full stop,” the former Juventus gaffer said in a press conference today.

“For me he is an important player in the squad. He’s in good form and a great player. Fabregas, on the other hand is “in a good shape and available for Sunday, for sure.”

“It’s the same for him as for Oscar [on his future at the club].”

Both Milanese sides had been linked to the pair, with the Nerazzurri even linked with a Brozovic-Fabregas swap in summer.

Fabregas has even held talks with the Rossoneri, though that doesn’t seem to have gone anywhere so far (from Tuttosport via the Sun).
