TRANSFER NEWS: Fabregas joins Thierry Henry at Monaco
Former Chelsea playmaker, Cesc Fabregas has joined his former teammate, Thierry Henry, at Monaco after a deal was struck between Chelsea and Monaco. The 31-year-old midfielder joined the French Ligue 1 side in a three and half year deal.
The assist king joined Chelsea from Barcelona in 2014, having played 303 times for Arsenal between 2003 and 2011.
Fabregas described the move as “a new project”, calling it a “great honour”.
“I’m here to help the team, I’m looking forward to starting. I am very excited,” he added.
He will be wearing the number 44 Jersey for Monaco.
Fabregas is a great addition to Henry’s team. Monaco have been having a poor season in all competition and with a Fabregas maybe Henry can be able to turn it around in his first job as a team manager.
