Chelsea midfielder, Cesc Fabregas is set for a medical at Monaco after he arrived the City last night.
A tearful Fabregas bade farewell to Chelsea after making his 501st appearance in English Football in in Chelsea’s 2-0 home win over Nottingham Forest in which he also missed a penalty.
In an emotional farewell message to the fans, Fabregas who received a standing ovation from more than 40,000 fans at the Stamford Bridge stadium, said: “Time flies, it feels like last week that I started playing professionally and now it’s more than 15 years.”
“It goes so fast and you have to be ready every three days, for the criticism with everyone saying how good you are and the ups and downs.”
“It feels like growing older it never goes away it is technique. Physicality goes away. Technicality stays with you.”
It is believed that the Monaco deal agreed will involve a two-and-a-half year package and a £9m signing-on bonus.
