• Chelsea thank Fàbregas for ‘his wonderful service’
Cesc Fàbregas has left Chelsea for the Ligue 1 side Monaco. The 31-year-old will join his former Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry, who is battling to prevent Monaco being relegated.
“Wow. I’m honoured to announce that I will be starting an exciting journey with this wonderfully historic club,” Fàbregas tweeted. “AS Monaco will be my home for the next 3.5 years, and I cannot wait to start this new challenge.”
