He was being compared to Yaya Toure, he was earning worldwide recognition and was being called up to the France national team.

The transfer at the time seemed like a brilliant idea. Since his summer arrival new signing Jorginho has been extremely effective in a deep position in the middle of the park, while the incredible N'Golo Kante is simply undroppable. The Spaniard hasn't played even a single game this season as he has been ruled out through an injury.

With the transfer window closed, there is speculation about what might happen when it reopens in January.

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has revealed his belief that Chelsea made a mistake allowing Tiemoue Bakayoko to leave the club this summer.

"I don't think he struggled that much", Metro UK quoted him as saying.

Manchester City Announce Revenues Of $656M
Manchester City have become only the second English club in history to surpass £500 million in annual revenues. The Club enters its fourth consecutive year as a profitable business, posting a profit of £10 million.

Fabregas has been sidelined with a knee injury for the past few weeks and is yet to play a Premier League game under new boss Maurizio Sarri but, with Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic now on board, it is open to debate how much game time the 2010 World Cup victor will actually see over the course of the campaign.

"Obviously, in your first season in a new club it's always hard and I wasn't expecting him to leave, but AC Milan are getting a great player".

A year loan can often be a place for a player to rediscover his confidence and return to his parent club reinvigorated.

Come December he'll be able to start opening talks with other clubs, and should he have failed to forge his way into Sarri's plans, a move away will prove very tempting.

"I am sure if he comes back to England he will be stronger and will show everyone what he's capable of".
