Three Chelsea Men Heading For January Exit As AC Milan Ramp Up Interest
Chelsea could lose three members of their squad to AC Milan in January as Milan director Leonardo has already held talks with Chelsea chief Marina Granovskaia. With the January window creeping up on us quickly, Milan are keen to bring in big name reinforcements after a trio of severe injuries.
Lucas Biglia, Giacomo Bonaventura and Mattia Caldara have all been ruled out for several months, and the Italians are now targeting a series of loan deals to see them through to the summer, with Financial Fair Play sanctions still hanging over the club.
Three Chelsea men that could make the move to the Serie A are Cesc Fabregas, Gary Cahill and Andreas Christensen who are all lacking game time at Stamford Bridge. Fabregas is the top target for Milan having made just nine appearances this season and with the 31-year-old out of contract in the summer, the Italian giants believe they can capture him in the winter.
Cahill is another player who could move away on loan in January as he searches for more minutes having fallen out of favour under new boss Maurizio Sarri. Christensen is a more ambitious target for Milan but having shown so much promise last year he has also found opportunities hard to come by this season.
At just 22, he could prove a wise investment for Milan, although it is unlikely that Chelsea would let one of their top young talents leave with such ease. It could take a big offer to tempt them to sell.
