Cesc Fabregas: Chelsea midfielder joins Monaco

Cesc Fabregas: Chelsea midfielder joins Monaco

With Cesc Fabregas' move to AS Monaco (finally) being confirmed on Friday evening, it's expected that Chelsea's pursuit of a replacement will accelerate over the weekend.

The source told AFP that Chelsea will only receive payments related to Fabregas' performance on the Mediterranean coast, contrasting with media reports that Monaco had already agreed to pay Chelsea 10 million euros ($11.5 million) for the player who could now make his debut for his new club in Sunday's Ligue 1 game away at Marseille.

Cesc Fabregas has reunited with former Arsenal team-mate Thierry Henry after joining Monaco from Chelsea.

Fabregas described the move as "a new project", calling it a "great honour".

These are two English Premier League titles, one FA Cup and one League Cup, during a period when the Spaniard made 198 appearances for Chelsea and scored 22 goals.

"I'm here to help the team, I'm looking forward to starting".

Powell repeats pledge to remain 'patient' with rate hikes
At the same time, Powell said there are concerns in financial markets about slowing global growth and rising trade tensions. The balance sheet "will be substantially smaller than it is now", though bigger than it was before the crisis, Powell said.

He joined Chelsea from Barcelona in 2014, having played 303 times for Arsenal between 2003 and 2011.

"Big goals and outstanding moments of quality, all backed up by the ultimate aim, which is to be part of a successful, trophy-winning team. I am very excited", he added.

"The group is of quality with young players and a young coach".

Fabregas waved goodbye to the Blues supporters after their FA Cup victory over Nottingham Forest a week ago, which proved to be his final game.

What his departure does do is free up a large chunk of Chelsea's wage bill, with Fabregas the third-highest paid player at the club behind N'Golo Kante and Eden Hazard despite only having six months left on his contract.
