Fabregas deal complicated for Madrid, says Zidane
Posted on: August 17, 2016, 07:53:58 AM
Zinedine Zidane did not dismiss interest in Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas, though he said any transfer deal would be complicated.

Former Barcelona star Fabregas has been linked with a sensational switch to European champions Madrid following Antonio Conte's appointment at Stamford Bridge.

Speculation has intensified after Fabregas was named among the substitutes in Chelsea's season-opening 2-1 win over West Ham on Monday.

Zidane was asked about Fabregas following Madrid's 5-3 friendly victory against Reims in the Santiago Bernabeu trophy on Tuesday but the Frenchman insisted he is happy with his squad, which includes midfielders Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, James Rodriguez and Casemiro.

"If you want to put another central midfielder into the mix then it becomes complicated. Cesc is a great player but it is not very straightforward," Zidane said post-match.
