Maurizio Sarri Urges Cesc Fabregas

Fabregas has made just five Premier League appearances this term and will be free to sign a pre-contract with a new team in January with his deal set to expire in June. Sarri is still hoping that Fabregas will stay with the club.

"In this position we have only two players, Jorginho and Fabregas, so for me it would be really a problem without Cesc," said Sarri. "I want him to stay, I don't know the final decision of Cesc and the club of course. But for me it's very important and if Cesc will go I think that we need to buy another player, and it's not easy because, technically, Cesc is a very important player. And I think that in the market it's very difficult to find a player with his characteristics."
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has  however, urged want away midfielder Cesc Fabregas to stay with the club.

The 31-year-old has seen his role at Stamford Bridge reduced this season, as the off-season additions of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic have pushed Fabregas down the pecking order.
