The deal reunites Fabregas with Thierry Henry, who played with Fabregas at Arsenal and is now Ligue 1 Monaco's coach.

Struggling AS Monaco have boosted their relegation fight by signing experienced midfielder Cesc Fabregas from Chelsea until June 2022.

Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev told his club's official website: "We are very pleased to welcome to AS Monaco Cesc Fabregas, a world-class player and a great professional, whose arrival demonstrates the ambition of the club".

He joined Chelsea from Barcelona in 2014, having played 303 times for Arsenal between 2003 and 2011. "We have a big game against Marseille on Sunday, I'm very excited".

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.

After winning two Premier League titles with the Blues, he has fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge this season under new coach Maurizio Sarri.

Having enjoyed a glittering career, capped by winning the World Cup with Spain in 2010, Fabregas arrives at a club who were French champions just 18 months ago but are now in crisis.

Chelsea's pursuit of a replacement has not been fully funded be Fabregas' departure, but we could receive up to £10M depending on his and Monaco's performances over the next three-and-a-half-years of his contract.

Henry has signed two defenders so far during the transfer window: 22-year-old Fode Ballo-Toure from Lille and 36-year-old Brazilian Naldo from Schalke.
