Cesc Fabregas will be a free agent next summer and we’ve covered several reports linking the Chelsea midfielder to AC Milan.

Italian website Tutto Mercato Web has another story and they look at the possibility of bringing the former Barcelona man to the San Siro in January.

Milan sporting director Leonardo has already been working to bring the World Cup winner to Italy and has already got in touch with the Premier League club’s leaders.

It’s claimed the Blues are demanding €10m to part ways with the Spain international midway through the season and the Rossoneri believe it’s too high for the 31-year-old, who has not featured regularly this season.

There’s been other claims Fabregas could go for free in the winter market.

Leonardo is now waiting for a response from the FA Cup winners as they want to see if they will allow Fabregas leave for nothing or for a reduced price in January.

The Serie A side’s idea is to offer Fabrgeas a 30 month contract, starting from January 2019 and that will see him earn €4.5m per year, plus bonuses, half of what he’s currently earning at the west London club.

TMW also mentions the midfielder has already turned down a three-year deal from China, meaning Milan still have an advantage to sign Fabregas, but it should be seen if it will be this season or next summer.
