Fabregas leaves Chelsea for Ligue 1 strugglers Monaco

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 Monaco, who are 19th in Ligue 1 and coached by his former Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry.

The 31-year-old had been out of favour at Stamford Bridge this season and, with his contract expiring in June, has departed for the French top flight on a three-and-a-half-year deal.

The Spain global helped the west London outfit win two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the League Cup in a little above four years.

Vice-president Vadim Vasilyev added: "We are very pleased to welcome to AS Monaco Cesc Fabregas, a world-class player and a great professional, whose arrival demonstrates the ambition of the club". Have your say in the comment section below.

Monaco, who have also been strongly linked to another Chelsea player, Michy Batshuayi, expressed their delight at the signing of Fabregas which they hope will belatedly kick-start their campaign.

After joining his new club side, Fabregas described the move as "a new project", calling it a "great honour".

Can Fabregas help Henry save Monaco's Ligue 1 status?

His tenure at the Emirates Stadium saw him win the FA Cup and also played in the 2006 Champions League final, which they lost to Barcelona, before joining the Catalan giants in 2011.

"The group is quality with young players and a young coach".

Sarri said: "As you know very well I am not in control of the transfer market".

Given that he is now plying his trade in Russian Federation with Zenit St. Petersburg, Leandro Paredes would be a very attainable target for Chelse.

The Spanish midfielder has completed his move to Monaco.
