Cesc Fabregas reacts on Instagram after Chelsea announce first four moves ahead of summer window


Chelsea have announced their first four moves ahead of the summer transfer window.

Olivier Giroud and Thiago Silva have seen their contracts extended by a further 12 months, although the former has teased that he could yet be on the move amid links to AC Milan.

The other two announcements were regarding departures as goalkeepers Willy Caballero and Jamal Blackman will both leave Chelsea when their contract expires at the end of the month.

An arrival from Manchester City in the summer of 2017, Caballero featured 38 times across all competitions for the Blues as he was usually cast in a back-up role.

As well as a statement via the club’s official website, there was also an Instagram post regarding Caballero’s exit, thus providing fans with a chance to say goodbye.

“After 4 years with the club, @willycaba will depart Stamford Bridge when his contract expires at the end of this month, ” the post read.

Whilst many Chelsea supporters and Reece James were amongst those to reply, there was a nice message from a former Blues midfielder.

Cesc Fabregas, who was a teammate of Caballero for a season and a half, commented with a love heart and prayer hands emoji.
