Premier League legend Cesc Fabregas could have been playing in Italian football rather than in the French Ligue 1 after the Spaniard revealed that he had two offers from the clubs in Italian football before he made the decision to leave the Premier League for France at the start of last year. Fabregas talked about Italian football clubs during an exclusive interview with Italian football news portal Tuttosport.
Fabregas, 33, could have been playing in the Italian Serie A if he opted for Italy ahead of France. According to him, he spoke to both AC Milan and Napoli before signing for French giants AS Monaco. The Spanish international left Chelsea to sign for Monaco on a two-and-a-half year deal for an undisclosed fee during the midpoint of the 2018/19 campaign. He could still play in Italian football if the clubs are still interested in him. His Monaco contract expires next summer and he's on course to become a free agent if the 2004 Champions League finalists don't offer him a new contract.
