Maurizio Sarri reveals major change he would make to Chelsea’s transfer policy

Maurizio Sarri has revealed he would scrap Chelsea’s policy of only offering one-year deals to players over the age of 30.

Cesc Fabregas is set to be the latest departure due to the controversial stance taken by the club.

Fabregas, 31, is set to join former Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry at Monaco on a two-and-a-half-year deal.

He made an emotional farewell to the Blues at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as he skippered the side in their 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup.

David Luiz could also leave the club in the summer with his contract set to expire despite playing a starring role in Sarri’s backline this term.

And the former Napoli boss says he would offer contracts on a case-by-case basis.

“I haven’t a club so my opinion is not important,” he said. “My opinion is it depends on the situation, I think.

“The situation is not the same for every player over 30 so its my opinion. If you are able to buy Chelsea we can discuss [changing it].”

Both Chelsea and Monaco insist a deal has not yet been struck for Fabregas despite the ex-Barca man travelling to France to finalise a switch.

It is believed the Stamford Bridge hierarchy are holding out for around £10million.

Chelsea take on Spurs in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg on Wednesday evening.
