Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri insisted on Monday that the English club must replace Cesc Fabregas who is close to joining Thierry Henry’s Monaco.
"If Cesc will go, of course, we need a replacement," Sarri said to reporters ahead of Tuesday’s League Cup semi-final first leg against Tottenham at Wembley.
"Now, with the midfielders, we are in trouble, I think. Without Cesc we have only five, so we are in trouble. We need a replacement."
