Much has been discussed with regards to Cesc Fàbregas' future at Chelsea. Once one of the team's key players, Cesc is nothing more than a luxury player nowadays, available to head coach Antonio Conte in certain situations, but not one who’s going to see too many minutes in normal game situations.

His absence from Conte's plans has resulted in transfer rumors linking Mr. Magic Hat to moves all over the world, from China to Italy to West Ham, with Chelsea possibly even willing to subsidize part of his wages to facilitate a potential loan move.

One club we hadn’t heard from before but now apparently can cross off the list of potential suitors are Europa League-specialists Sevilla. Here’s their manager Jorge Sampaoli, who, incidentally, was linked with the Chelsea job before we chose Conte.

"Cesc is an important player, but the truth is that we're not thinking about him at the moment. It's not in my head that he could be here. Obviously he's an intelligent footballer who any coach would want to have, but I'm not thinking about him right now."

Sampaoli's words are flexible enough for a possible interest in the future, or whenever “right now” expires. While Cesc does not have a starting spot at Chelsea currently, he would be a great addition to many other clubs.
