Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has joined Ligue 1 side Monaco, managed by his former Arsenal team-mate Thierry Henry, on a three-and-a-half year deal.
The 31-year-old Spaniard captained the Blues in the FA Cup against Nottingham Forest on Saturday and was in tears as he applauded fans at the final whistle.
He joined Chelsea from Barcelona in 2014, having played 303 times for Arsenal between 2003 and 2011.
Fabregas described the move as “a new project”, calling it a “great honour”.
“I’m here to help the team, I’m looking forward to starting. I am very excited,” he added.
