Cesc Fabregas is happier now than he has ever been. The midfielder, who made his 300th Premier League appearance in Chelsea’s 3-1 win against Swansea, opened the scoring on Saturday afternoon and afterwards lavished praise on his manager Antonio Conte before insisting that he has little intention of leaving the club anytime soon. "I have made a statement and I made it clear I want to stay at Chelsea," was his unequivocal response to one inquiry into his future plans.
Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham are set to do battle for Monaco forward Kylian Mbappé, who could command a fee of £51m ($63.55m). The French teenager has enjoyed a wondrous season under Leonardo Jardim but Monaco are believed to be ready to cash in on the 18-year-old. Mbappé scored against City during his side's 5-3 loss to Pep Guardiola's side on Tuesday (21 February) and has netted 19 times in 43 appearances for the Ligue 1 leaders as they look to steal Paris Saint-Germain's crown.
