After talks about the former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas coming back to Chelsea, the 27-year-old Spaniard finally signed a five-year deal with the team.
Just last week, Spain Coach Vicente del Bosque was disappointed that a private conversation between him and Gerard Pique about Fabregas leaving Barcelona was made public.
Fabregas used to play in Barca, then he joined the Blues when Arsenal didn’t sign him up.
According to Chelsea, their offer matched the midfielder’s ambition. However, the fee remains undisclosed. According to the team, the Spaniard still has unfinished business with them in the Premier League. Meanwhile, back in the Spanish club, the team is happy to get a £30 million fee for Fabregas to leave.
Fabregas said, he thinks about all the offers he has received very carefully, and he believes that the best option for him is to join Chelsea.
Just 10 days before Fabregas signed in to the team, England midfielder Frank Lampard made an announcement that he would be leaving Stamford Bridge after his 13-years stay in the team.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is also looking forward to finalise the draft of Spanish International Diego Costa of Atletico Madrid. This is his move to improve his 2013-2014 third-place finish.
Fabregas said he is very excited to start playing for them and that he will be fully committed to the team. He said the team has an incredible manager and amazing players.
He will be wearing the number-four shirt and play as one of the central midfielders along side John Obi Mikel, Nemanja Matic, and Ramires. Fabregas was able to score 50 times in all of the 305 games playing for Arsenal when he used to play for the team before.
Meanwhile, when he was still playing for Barcelona, he was able to score 35 goals in all of his 129 appearances. But this score didn’t give him the midfield role he vied for at the Nou Camp, especially with the presence of other players including Sergio Busquets, Andres Iniesta, and Xavi Hernandez.
