Las Palmas consider shock move for Cesc Fabregas after his release from French side Monaco.

In conversation with the broadcaster zero wave, he said: “The chances that Cesc will come to us are 40 percent. He behaved like a gentleman in his conversations with us.
“Convincing a world champion to play in the second division is complicated.
“But from a sporting point of view we are clearly a good option for him.”
It’s been a frustrating season for the Spaniard after an injury shortened his season
The 35-year-old joined Monaco from Chelsea in 2019 and made 68 appearances for the French side in all competitions, contributing four goals and nine assists during his three-year spell at the Stade Louis II.
Fabregas struggled to stay fit in his final year in the Principality, only making six appearances for Philippe Clement’s side in all competitions.
Still, there’s little doubt about the midfielder’s ability. Fabregas won the World Cup with Spain in 2010 and the European titles in 2008 and 2012.
The midfielder also won two Premier League titles, the Europa League and the FA Cup, with Chelsea. Fabregas also won the FA Cup with Arsenal in 2005 while in England.

There will be no shortage of potential suitors for the midfielder but Ramirez is hoping he has an ace up his sleeve in the negotiations.
He added: “Our coaching staff are the same people who developed Cesc in Barcelona’s youth ranks.
“But we have a competitor for him in a different league and they offer him different terms. We expect to hear from him within the next 48 hours.’
The Gran Canaria club are hoping to persuade Fabregas to relocate just 800 miles south of mainland Spain for the end of his career.
