Chelsea to offer star man £150,000-a-week deal: He could be at Stamford Bridge until 2020

CHELSEA are set to hand Cesc Fabregas a new contract.

The 29-year-old has returned to Antonio Conte’s starting XI in recent weeks after playing second-fiddle to Nemanja Matic and N’Golo Kante for most of the campaign.

Fabregas joined Chelsea from Barcelona on a five-year deal worth £150,000-a-week in 2014.

And, according to the Sunday Mirror newspaper, he will be offered a year-long extension on the same terms.

Fabregas helped Chelsea to the Premier League title in his maiden season at the club but struggled for form last term.

Despite being a bit-part figure for most of this season, the ex-Arsenal star has racked up six goals and 11 assists in all competitions.

Chelsea manager Conte is on the hunt for midfield reinforcements ahead of a return to the Champions League next season.

Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is his leading target.
