Sky Sports, RMC and L’Équipe report that 31-year-old Spanish and Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has arrived in Monaco to tie up a deal with the Principality side.
Fabregas has a meeting with his agent and the club this afternoon after previously finding an agreement in principle over a 2 and a half-year contract with the Ligue 1 side. Chelsea and Monaco are close to an agreement over a fee, and continue to discuss.
As of last night, final negotiation points were still being discussed – ASM want a dozen million Euros in order to part with the Spaniard, a sum that the Principality side views as excessive.
Barring an exceptional u-turn, the Spaniard should sign a contract with Monaco in the next 48 hours, which will be the fourth club of his career.
