Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has completed his move to Monaco.
Fabregas will move to Monaco without a fee for now, as Chelsea will be paid via bonuses depending on the Fabregas’s performances.
The 31-year-old has signed a three-and-a-half-year-deal with the principality club, with it 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.
Fabregas’ departure from Chelsea sees him end four-and-a-half years at Stamford Bridge after he joined the Blues from Barcelona in 2014, with the Spain international helping the west London outfit win two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the League Cup.
