Cesc Fabregas leaves Chelsea to join Monaco

Monaco target Michy Batshuayi after swooping for Chelsea team-mate Cesc Fabregas

Monaco have agreed a deal with Chelsea to bring Spain midfielder Cesc Fabregas to Ligue 1.

Monaco get Cesc on what is initially a free transfer but could see them pay Chelsea up to 11 million euros depending on clauses relating to his and the team's performance.

Cesc Fabregas played 303 times for Arsenal between 2003 and 2011, helping the club win the 2005 FA Cup.

After starting out with Arsenal as a roaming attacking midfielder with a clinical eye for goal and a deft pass, Fabregas moved into a deeper-lying position over the years where his vision of the game and outstanding passing range helped him to remain influential in games with Chelsea.

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

"It is a great pleasure to join AS Monaco, a new project for me", he told Monaco's official website.

'Michy? I know him, we rubbed shoulders with Belgium, he is a player who can be interesting, ' Henry said. "I am very excited", he added.

After four-and-a-half years at Stamford Bridge, the time had come for Fabregas to move on to pastures new and the decision was made not to renew his contract in west London.

His departure could force Chelsea into the market for midfield reinforcements, with head coach Maurizio Sarri having felt Fabregas was the only player in his squad technically equipped to fill in for Jorginho as a deep-lying playmaker.

Chelsea are understood to be interested in replacing the Spaniard with either Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella or Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Leandro Paredes. But I really wanted to wear Monegasque colors so I spontaneously proposed to the club to make every effort to evolve in Monaco.

"In my opinion we need two players, but then it is up to the club".
