Fabregas finally joins Monaco for £10m

Fabregas won two Premier League titles at Chelsea after his return to England from Barcelona

He has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with his former club.

The 2010 World Cup victor has penned a three-year deal with Monaco, who has been struggling in the French top flight this season.

Fabregas arrived at Stamford Bridge as a 2012 European Championship and 2010 World Cup victor with Spain. Have your say in the comment section below.

Monaco want Michy Batshuayi to join his old Chelsea team-mate Cesc Fabregas in France after the striker had his loan cut short by Valencia.

Fabregas won two league titles with Chelsea and one Spanish La Liga crown during his 2011-14 stint at Barcelona.

Fabregas described the move as "a new project" and a "great honour".

Phillies rumors: Expect Manny Machado decision in the next week
While a decision may be coming soon, it's still unclear who has the lead in the bidding. The White Sox have signed Manny Machado's mom as assistant general manager.

Fabregas was previously Jorginho's deputy in the deepest midfield position, with the World Cup victor being the only other central player in our squad capable of dictating the play from that area of the pitch.

"We thank Cesc for his wonderful service and wish him the very best of luck for the next chapter in what has been a fantastic career", said Chelsea.

Monaco will hope Fabregas' signing can provide the necessary spark to help them avoid the drop.

Fabregas, 31, won the Premier League title twice during his four-and-a-half-year spell at Stamford Bridge. "I am very excited", he added.

Maurizio Sarri recently stressed that he would only be happy letting Fabregas leave Chelsea if he could sign an adequate replacement, highlighting the Spaniard as his only back-up for Jorginho in the deep-lying playmaker role.

The Premier League club are understood to be interested in deals for Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella and Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Leandro Paredes.
