Despite confirmations from multiple sources that Cesc Fabregas is leaving Chelsea to move to AS Monaco, the deal is still not done.

Media outlets reported on Monday that Chelsea has agreed to let Fabregas go, with manager Sarri even announcing that the player needs to leave Chelsea.

Some publications reported that the player has agreed terms with Monaco, but others reported that the two teams have not agreed a transfer fee, with Chelsea also apparently holding out for a replacement before agreeing to close the deal.

Monaco said Chelsea’s asking price is too high, and so, at the time of writing, nothing has been announced officially.

Meanwhile Portuguese player Pepe is said to be inching closer to a Monaco move.
