Cesc it aint so!!

It’s being reported that 31 year-old Spain and Chelsea Midfielder Cesc Fabregas is on his way to the bottom of Ligue 1 to meet up with his former Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry at Monaco. Henry took over earlier this season after a slow start, but that slow start has now led to a free fall and Monaco now sit in 19th place.

This is news to AC Milan fans as the Rossoneri have been heavily linked to a transfer for the midfielder. I for one am all good with this move and us not paying a bunch of money for a 31 year old midfielder. I don't think that age should keep Milan from signing players in that range, but with the FFP uncertainties and him not being in any particularly impressive form, I think that the money can be better spent somewhere else where more reinforcement is needed. Like scoring goals.

In the end thanks, but no thanks, and have fun in a league where you are playing for survival against the likes of Guingamp....Whatever that is.
