BREAKING: Fabregas finally joins Monaco for £10m

Intro

Chelsea midfielder, Cesc Fabregas has completed his move to AS Monaco in a deal worth £10 million ($12.8m).

The 31-year-old signed a three-and-a-half-year-deal with the French club. It is hoped he will play a key role in helping the 2017 Ligue 1 champions avoid relegation.

He will reunite with former Arsenal team-mate and close friend Thierry Henry at Stade Louis II, with the Gunners’ all-time top goalscorer taking his first steps in management after Leonardo Jardim was sacked in October.

“It is a great pleasure to join AS Monaco, a new project for me,” Fabregas said in a statement.

“The group is quality with young players and a young coach. I’m here to help the team.
