Is it done? Is Cesc Fabregas a Chelsea player?
Catalunya Radio are reporting on Saturday evening that Barcelona have accepted Chelsea’s €33m bid for midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
Should the story prove true, it will come to no surprise to the masses; particularly after Gerard Pique was recorded telling Spanish boss Vicente Del Bosque that Cesc had agreed to leave the Camp Nou for €33m during a press conference last week.
The news that Chelsea had finally got their man was first reported by Catalunya Radio’s Tot gira, who tweeted: “BREAKING. The club has decided to accept the offer from Chelsea for 33 million for Cesc Fabregas.”
Many Chelsea fans see the acquisition of 27-year-old Cesc in light of the club’s decision to allow Frank Lampard to leave Stamford Bridge this summer after 13 years at the Blues. Cesc is seen as the successor to Lampard in the Chelsea midfield.
