Cesc Fabregas has joined Ligue 1 side AS Monaco on a permanent move, Chelsea confirmed earlier tonight.
An official statement read: “Cesc Fabregas has today completed a permanent transfer to Monaco.
The midfielder’s switch to the Ligue 1 club brings the curtain down on his four-and-a-half year Chelsea career, a period in which he won four major trophies, including two Premier League titles.
The Spaniard made 198 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 22 goals.
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”.
Wow. I’m honoured to announce that I will be starting an exciting journey with this wonderfully historic Club. @as_monaco will be my home for the next 3.5 years and I cannot wait to start this new challenge. #daghemunegu #NowItsTime pic.twitter.com/t2rB4Vqklh
