Fabregas arrived at Stamford Bridge as a 2012 European Championship and 2010 World Cup victor with Spain. Five key things to know...

His tenure at the Emirates Stadium saw him win the FA Cup and also played in the 2006 Champions League final, which they lost to Barcelona, before joining the Catalan giants in 2011.

The Spaniard clocked up 198 appearances for the Blues and won two Premier League titles with the club. He will be remembered as an all-time legend of English football and, at the age of just 31, he still has some magic left in his boots to delight Monaco and Ligue 1 supporters.

The midfielder departs England with the second-highest number of assists in Premier League history, 111, after recently making his 350th appearance in the competition during the game against Southampton.

Cesc Fabregas has agreed to a €10 million ($11.5 million) transfer from Chelsea to Monaco.

The 32-year-old has signed a three-and-a-half year contract to reunite with his former Arsenal team-mate Thierry Henry after bringing an end to his glittering Stamford Bridge career.

The Spaniard has now completed the move to Monaco, signing a three-and-a-half year deal.

"It's a great pleasure to join Monaco, a new project for me, " Fabregas said. "It is a quality squad with young players and a young coach", said Fabregas, referring to former France striker Henry.

"Wow. I'm honored to announce that I will be starting an exciting journey with this wonderfully historic club".

The original plan was for Chelsea to only let Fabregas go when replacements have been found.
