AC Milan will try to tempt Chelsea into selling Cesc Fàbregas with a ‘money back’ offer in the summer, despite the midfielder’s preference to stay at Stamford Bridge. Fàbregas scored one goal and made another on his 300th Premier League game at the weekend to underline his value to Chelsea in a season in which he has spent long spells on the substitutes’ bench.
Italy striker Andrea Belotti made amends for missing a second-half penalty for Torino with a late brace that secured a share of the points in a 2-2 draw at Fiorentina in Serie A Monday. In a clash helpful to both sides' chances of qualifying for Europe next season, Fiorentina raced to a two-goal lead before half-time after Riccardo Saponara, in the eighth minute and Nikola Kalinic, with a 38th minute header, beat Joe Hart in the Torino net. Hart was otherwise heroic in a one-sided first half that saw the England 'keeper save at the feet of Kalinic then Borja Valero in the opening minutes, then deny Cristian Tello later on as the hosts piled on the pressure.
Radja Nainggolan's glorious double helped Roma to a 3-1 win against Inter at San Siro as they moved back within seven points of Juventus at the top of Serie A. Juve had been enjoying an excellent weekend - beating Empoli as Napoli lost to Atalanta on Saturday - but Nainggolan was influential in keeping Roma's faint title hopes alive. Inter had won their previous eight home league matches, but they took too long to get going against an energetic Roma outfit and ultimately paid the price as their attempts to equalise came up short.
