Cesc Fabregas says that he is putting any thoughts about his future to the back of his mind as he looks to deliver more silverware for Chelsea this season.
The 30-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the 2018/19 season but he says that talks about a possible extension can wait until the summer.
Right now I don’t think it’s the right time (for talks). (It’s time) to focus on Chelsea, to feel good and deliver points and trophies for the club.
Chelsea have had a policy of not giving large contract extensions to players over 30 but the Spaniard says that he feels like he has plenty of football left in him.
I am only 30. What is 30? Nothing. I’m very young. I really mean it. Especially how I play, the position I play. You can go for many more years. I can tell you many cases.
He also said that Chelsea is the place that he wants to be and he is looking forward to holding extension talks.
It’s true at the end of the year I have a year left, but let’s see what happens. I’m where I want to be. I’m enjoying my football. When the moment comes to talk about different things I’ll be here, ready for it.
The Spaniard wasn’t always a regular under Antonio Conte but he’s firmly in the manager’s plans so there doesn’t seem to be any reason why he want to leave, but contract talks can always be difficult so time will tell about how his future pans out.
