Cesc Fabregas left Chelsea and completed a switch to AS Monaco.
Saturday’s edition of L’Equipe claims the Blues now need to bring in a replacement for the Spaniard and for several years they’ve been following Adrien Rabiot of Paris Saint-Germain, but without taking any action.
The 23-year-old has six months left on his contract at Parc des Princes and Barcelona are believed to be keen on acquiring his services in the summer, while Bayern Munich have probed the possibility of signing him in recent days.
It’s explained the type of player Maurizo Sarri is looking to bring in this month fits the profile of Rabiot and internally, there have been discussions at Chelsea about the amount of offer needed to secure the services of the Frenchman.
For any deal to take shape in January, the Premier League outfit will have to convince the player’s mother and agent, Veronique Rabiot.
The report claims that Chelsea ‘can afford’ the fee needed to sign the player and don’t hesitate to formulate an offer that includes a signing on bonus well in excess of €10m.
Rabiot has never hidden his interest in playing in the top flight club competition in England and this could be in the favour of the Stamford Bridge outfit.
L’Equipe still suggest Barca are favourites to secure Rabiot’s services, but Chelsea ‘seem determined’ to give it a go.
Should Chelsea be successful in their efforts in the surprise signing of Rabiot, it will be massive boost for them and at the same time, a big blow for the La Liga winners.
There’s every chance this could all be an effort to force Barcelona to make a tempting January offer to PSG.
