Chelsea have agreed Fabregas fee, according to reports

David Ramos

Graham Hunter has some "off the record" information that he's sharing

Graham Hunter is reporting that Chelsea and Barcelona have a fee agreed for a Cesc Fabregas transfer, but that he's unsure of whether or not the Spanish midfielder would work with Jose Mourinho. Here's the relevant portion of what he had to say:

"Barcelona are off the record confirming that there’s an agreement on price with Chelsea. I have to admit I do not know what Fabregas would think of working for Jose Mourinho though."

"There were times when Mourinho was with [Real] Madrid that Fabregas was - although articulate - very critical of Mourinho’s behaviour. That can change, huge wages can make you work for different people."

Hunter is one of the more reliable guys covering the Spanish game, so if he's saying there's a fee agreed with Chelsea, there's a good chance that there's actually a fee agreed with Chelsea.  I suppose that's either good or bad news, depending on how you feel about Fabregas.

Personally, I could probably go either way on this one. Fabregas does nothing to address the hole created in our pivot when David Luiz left for PSG, though he'd certainly fit in a very interesting central midfield should Jose Mourinho opt to play a 4-3-3 or 4-2-2-2 system. He'd be awfully expensive for a marginal upgrade, but Chelsea really don't have any sort of concern with FFP at the moment, and the fact that Cesc counts as homegrown and association trained is an awfully nice bonus.

Regardless or how you feel about Cesc, it sounds as if this one might actually have some substance to it.
