Once the rumor mill starts spinning it don't stop

Another week another vague, questionable Atlanta United rumor. This time it's Chelsea FC's Cesc Fabregas who has been linked with the club. Noted MLS rumor twitter account MLSTransfers has revealed that a source told them that the Spaniard has been in discussions with the AUFC brass as they are looking to make a "big splash" before their inaugural season.

Our goal here at DSS is to bring you every piece of credible info regarding Atlanta United there is on the World Wide Web. Cesc has struggled mightily with the defending Premier League champions this season, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that he's looking for a move away from Stamford Bridge.

Considering Cesc has three years left on his contract, he would require a massive transfer fee to be brought over to MLS. Is it possible that this could occur, sure, but until the rumor mill brings more than one (vague) source claiming talks have occurred it is best to keep this with a grain of salt.

Although this is not the first time a once-great Premier League player has been linked with our club...
