Man Utd's deal for Frenkie de Jong rocked as Chelsea ’set to send offer in coming hours’

But Chelsea could outbid them to put themselves in the driving seat when it comes to securing the 25-year-old’s signature.

Fabregas was struggling to get into the Catalan giants’ starting XI at the time due to the presence of Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Sergio Busquets.
