At the end of a difficult season where his appearances on the pitch were very rare, Cesc Fabregas will not extend his contract with AS Monaco next June. But the 35-year-old Spanish world champion is already dreaming of bouncing elsewhere.
Team manager or at least regular starter since his arrival in 2019, Cesc Fabregas has become invisible to AS Monaco. The Spanish midfielder has played very few games this season with the Principality club. Six in total, including two in Ligue 1 and one in N2 with the reserve. Suffice to say, if ASM is third at this stage of the season, it does not really owe it to its experienced Spanish world champion in 2010 with La Roja. Fabregas has had a difficult year as his contract runs until next June. But, the heart is not there any more, at least on the Rock.
Fabregas leaves Monaco but his career continues
Asked by SoFoot, the former Barcelona player made it clear that he was living his last weeks in Monaco after a very trying last exercise. ” It’s the worst year not only in my career, but also in my life, because when I’m not happy in football, I’m not happy in my life. I suffered a lot this year, and it was hard mentally. […] It’s sure that it’s over between Monaco and me. My contract expires next June, and I’m looking for a fresh start. My head needs a fresh start somewhere else “, he confided.

Fabregas’ future is still unclear. However, faced with rumors of retirement, he says it loud and clear: he still wants to continue his playing career. He is already waiting for offers and projects, having not defined a precise place where to continue to test the round ball. Even though he’s 35, he’s still an interesting opportunity for a club in need of top-level midfield experience.
