Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Former Arsenal captain and Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has reportedly turned down a £570,000-per-week contract offer to seal a transfer to the Chinese Super League and also a £250,000-per-week to re-unite with his former side.
An unnamed Chinese has come in for the Spaniard, who has been largely out of favour at the Stamford Bridge this season, though he helped his side with his stunning goal against Sunderland on Wednesday night.
Fabregas has been linked with the likes of AC Milan, Roma and West Ham in recent months after seemingly struggling to win over Antonio Conte, though he may not have given up yet.
Despite an offer to make huge money with a move to a mystery club in China, Marca claim Fabregas has turned them down as he still feels he has something to offer at the top level of the game.
Still only 29 years of age, Fabregas has been playing regular first-team football in the Premier League, La Liga and at international level since he was just 17 years old, and has looked a little burnt out in recent times.
However, the former Arsenal captain seems eager to prove he can still be valuable to Chelsea, and will not be shown the door easily this January.
