AC Milan face a battle to sign Cesc Fabregas as Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is keen to tie him down to a new deal.

The midfielder, along with Chelsea team-mate Gary Cahill, has been heavily linked with the San Siro, with some reports claiming that talks may have already started.

However on Tuesday Sarri called for the Blues to tie down both Fabregas and David Luiz to a new contracts in moves which could challenge the existing policy.

Both Luiz and Fabregas are 32 in 2019, before the end of the season, and the length of any possible extension is a stumbling block, Sarri revealed.

‘David and Cesc are leaders. And so I think it’s very important for me, for the staff, also for their team-mates, if they stay with us,’ said Sarri, who was speaking ahead of Wednesday’s Premier League trip to Wolves.

‘I spoke with the club about this one month ago. I know very well that it’s not easy, but I think that we can do a new deal for both.

‘The club want a short contract and the players want a long contract. And so it’s difficult for this reason. I think at the end we can find a solution.

‘They are very important players for us. It’s very difficult to find a centre back for this level. And it’s very difficult to find a central midfielder technically like Fabregas. So I think they have to stay with us.’
