The Spanish worldwide still has 18 months left on his current deal at Stamford Bridge, however, the Blues are set to offer the midfielder a new contract, which is expected to be a new one-year extension on top of his existing deal.

The same report says that the length of Fabregas' new contract has not yet been decided but the player himself would reportedly be keen to sign a new two-year deal with the west London club.

And he has been an ever present in the line-up this season, missing just one game through suspension.


The report indicates the Spaniard wants a two-year deal at the English champions but the club's policy is to offer only one-year extensions for players aged over 30.

Rumours have emerged that Mourinho will swoop for the ex-Barcelona star if he fails to land Mesut Ozil from Arsenal.

Fabregas struggled to break into Antonio Conte's first team plans last season, starting just 13 Premier League games.

Alongside Matic, Fabregas was vital to Chelsea's title win under Mourinho in 2014/15 and the Portuguese reportedly wants to replicate that midfield with United.

Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas is over 30 now and has only a dozen and a half months left with his contract at the Stamford Bridge.
