Cesc Fabregas Hopes Chelsea Renews His Contract
Cesc Fabregas says he wants to sign a new deal at Chelsea and play under head coach Maurizio Sarri “for a long time”.
The 31-year-old playmaker featured under Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, Pep Guardiola at Barcelona and Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte at Chelsea.
But Sarri, a 59-year-old heavy-smoking former banker, has inspired Fabregas, whose present contract expires at the end of the season.
“I wish he came a bit earlier to be honest, it’s a little bit late now in my career. Definitely I’m very happy with him,” Fabregas said.
“I’d love to stay at the club. I’ve been very happy for the last four years and a half, we’ve had great success, won many things.
“I feel I still have a lot of football left in me but it is now up to the club.”
