Monaco's Henry names second Chelsea player he wants

The Spanish midfielder began his career in England at Arsenal after joining them from Barcelona's academy and was named as the club's captain in 2008.

Despite Fabregas flying to Monaco to finalise the move on Sunday, Chelsea had been stalling on a deal until the club could find a replacement.

The 2010 World Cup victor has penned a three-year deal with Monaco, who has been struggling in the French top flight this season.

He will reunite with former Arsenal team-mate and close friend Thierry Henry at Stade Louis II, with the Gunners' all-time top goalscorer taking his first steps in management after Leonardo Jardim was sacked in October.

Last weekend, an emotional Fabregas applauded Chelsea's home fans at Stamford Bridge after making his last appearance for the club in an FA Cup match against Nottingham Forest. "It is a quality squad with young players and a young coach", said Fabregas, referring to former France striker Henry.

Fabregas scored 22 goals in 198 appearances for Chelsea, having arrived from Barcelona in the summer of 2014. "I am very excited", he added. On an worldwide level, he won two European Championships (in 2008 and 2012) and was also part of the La Roja squad which won the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

"Fabregas departs having helped the club achieve great success, as well as providing our supporters with some wonderful memories".
