Despite the obvious need of midfield reinforcements in Chelsea, the Blues are looking to clear out a major crop of their misfiring players.
Latest report according to the Metro claims that Chelsea out-of-form midfielder Cesc Fabregas has told Chelsea new boss Guus Hiddink he wants to leave Chelsea for a new club in the winter transfer window.
This comes as a surprise development, as the star just signed for the Blues last year summer transfer window.
Fabregas was inspiring for Chelsea last season as he helped the Blues to win both the EPL title and Capital One Cup in his debut season with his 18 goals assists.
The Spaniard midfielder was booed in Sunderland game by Chelsea fans ,who think he was one of the reasons why Roman Abramovich sacked Jose Mourinho.
The Spaniard had struggled for form this season. He was a flop in Chelsea 2-2 draw against Watford last weekend. His unimpressive performance saw Hiddink taking him off at the beginning of second half.
Report has it that Italian giant AC Milan, Juventus and Real Madrid are currently monitoring Fabregas situation at Stamford Bridge and they could sanction a move for the former Arsenal man in January, should Chelsea be ready to grant him his wish.
