Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, has confirmed his interest in monitoring Cesc Fabregas’ situation at FC Barcelona.
It is widely reported that Fabregas has fallen out of favour at Camp Nou and his preferred destination is the Premier League.
Chelsea are believed to be in the driving seat to sign Fabregas, while Manchester United and Arsenal are also in the race.
Mourinho has now further sparked the Blues links by rubbishing claims that he is not a fan of the Spain international during a pre-World Cup event for Yahoo.
"I am interested in studying Fabregas' situation," he is quoted as saying by the Portuguese media.
"I think he is anxious to leave Barcelona and motivated to return to England. I think that is clear."
However, Mourinho does not believe that Fabregas' future will be resolved ahead of the World Cup.
"Whether he is going to sign for Chelsea or for another club that is not a subject to be discussed today, tomorrow or before the World Cup.”
Fabregas is currently with the Spanish squad ahead of the World Cup in Brazil, but has been the hottest transfer target this summer.
