Chinese club hilariously deny interest in Chelsea star
Chinese Super League side Shangdong Luneng have denied an interest in signing Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas, per Sky Sports.
Fabregas future at Stamford Bridge is unclear, with the 29-year-old failing to hold down a regular spot in Antonio Conte’s Premier League title chasers.
Sky claim the Spain international has attracted a number of suitors in China, where the transfer window does not close until the end of February.
But Shangdong have moved to deny they could sign the Blues man.
“Yikes! What a super competent agent we have. But Fabregas is not our cup of tea.”
“Please, for God’s sake do not spread the fake news. Shandong Luneng will not buy another foreign player this season.
“Our coaching staff have already made elaborate arrangements for our foreign players.
“In the meantime, we will remain committed to producing home-grown talents for the Luneng academy. How about bringing up our own Fabregas.”
