According to reports in recent days, the Chinese are more than intent to continue their mammoth spending spree this summer however, it's not enough to tempt Cesc Fabregas to leave Stamford Bridge as he has reportedly made it clear that he wants to stay and impress Antonio Conte.

I personally think it's great news and Fabregas becomes the latest player to re-affirm their commitment and intention to stay here without Champions League football next year. Eden Hazard has done the same last week and so to has Thibaut Courtois but, being honest, I am not too bothered if the Belgian Goalkeeper leaves!

You think of Antonio Conte and what he did for Andrea Pirlo's career by asking him to play to his strengths. We can all agree and the player himself has admitted it publicly, Fabregas is not the best defensive midfielder at all. He isn't quick enough and cannot tackle to save his life which the same could arguably be said of Pirlo, so why do we continue to play him in that position?

You have seen the positive of him playing there when he has the ball at his feet and almost turns into a Quarterback popping the ball about the pitch with total ease. Conte never asked Pirlo to get his knee's dirty diving into tackles and busting a gut to track back or to cover the width of the pitch!

All Pirlo was asked to do was to dictate the teams possession when they had the ball and to play to his strengths and look what happened. I honestly believe Cesc Fabregas can do exactly the same if he has players around him to do the dirty work, to win the ball back to then give it to him!

You can understand the lure of the monies on offer in China for younger players, for those not featuring much for their current sides or those players with just a few years remaining. The financial gain is incredible. For the younger players they could go out there for three years, almost putting their career on hold to set themselves up for life, to then come back and re-start their careers in Europe and those at the end of their careers one final pay day.

For Cesc Fabregas however, he doesn't need to move and full credit to him for staying put and being prepared to put right the wrongs of this year.

Under Conte, in that Pirlo role, Cesc Fabregas could be outstanding week in, week out and would have a massive influence on our success in the future.
