Cesc Fabregas has joined AS Monaco on a three-and-a-half-year deal from Chelsea, where he will be coached by former Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry.
The Spanish midfielder joins the Ligue 1 side for a fee believed to be between eight and ten million euros.
Fabregas fell out of favour at Stamford Bridge since the arrival of Italian manager Maurizio Sarri in the summer, and was keen to move on to get more first-team opportunities.
Key to the move was the fact that Monaco are currently coached by Fabregas’ former Gunners teammate Henry, with whom he won the Premier League in 2004.
Fabregas leaves England as the Spaniard with the most Premier League appearances, with 350 to his name in spells with Arsenal and Chelsea across 12 seasons.
There will be little time for the former Barcelona midfielder to enjoy the Principality, as Monaco currently sit second from last in Ligue 1.
