Fabregas Inks 5-Year Deal With Chelsea

Cesc Fabregas completed his move to Chelsea claiming he has ‘unfinished business’ in the English Premier League, with former club Arsenal deciding not to exercise their first-option agreement on the Spain midfielder.
It is believed Barcelona received £30m from Chelsea for the 27-year-old and Fabregas has signed a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge, as the move was completed with the player currently in Brazil with the Spain national side. 
Fabregas came through the ranks at Barcelona before joining Arsenal, where he developed into a first-team regular over an eight-year spell and eventually became captain at the Emirates Stadium.
Having only lifted the FA Cup with the Gunners a move back to Barcelona in 2011 saw Fabregas add several other club honours to the FIFA World Cup and two European Championship titles he collected at international level. Manchester United failed in a bid to sign Fabregas last summer but now he is please to be back in the Premier League with Chelsea and revealed Arsenal had decided against making a move for their former skipper.
“I do feel that I have unfinished business in the Premier League and now is the right time for me to return,” he said in a statement. “Yes, everyone knows that Arsenal had the first option to sign me. They decided not to take this option and therefore it wasn’t meant to be. I wish them well in the future.
“I considered all the other offers very carefully and I firmly believe that Chelsea is the best choice. They match my footballing ambitions with their hunger and desire to win trophies. They have an amazing squad of players and an incredible manager. I am fully committed to this team and I can’t wait to start playing.
