Monaco sign Chelsea's Fabregas on three-and-a-half-year deal

Cesc Fabregas GFX

The midfielder has finally completed his move to the Ligue 1 strugglers on a three-and-a-half year deal.

Fabregas will move to Monaco without a fee for now, as Chelsea will be paid via bonuses depending on the Fabregas's performances.

The 2010 World Cup victor has penned a three-year deal with Monaco, who has been struggling in the French top flight this season.

He has subsequently been allowed to reunite with former teammate Thierry Henry in Ligue 1.

'Michy? I know him, we rubbed shoulders with Belgium, he is a player who can be interesting, ' Henry said. I'm here to help the team. "We have a big game against Marseille on Sunday, I'm very excited".

Fabregas made a tearful farewell to Chelsea fans in Saturday's 2-0 FA Cup win at home against Nottingham Forest, where he had a penalty saved.

"Fabregas departs having helped the club achieve great success, as well as providing our supporters with some wonderful memories".

After winning two Premier League titles with the Blues, he has fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge this season under new coach Maurizio Sarri.

With both Leandro Parades and Nicolo Barella being closely linked with the club, Chelsea must be confident that Fabregas' void will be filled in the coming weeks.

Fabregas has been used to being near the top of the league during spells with Arsenal, Barcelona and Chelsea.

AC Milan had previously shown an interest in signing him, but they were priced out of a deal due to upcoming Financial Fair Play sanctions.

Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev added: "We are very pleased to welcome to AS Monaco Cesc Fabregas, a world-class player and a great professional, whose arrival demonstrates the ambition of the club".
