Cesc Fabregas joined Barcelona in August of 2011 and the Spanish midfielder went on talking during one of his first press conferences as a Barcelona player saying that it was a dream for him to return to his childhood club. It was a substantially long transfer saga as the head chiefs of Barcelona had been attempting to sign Fabregas from Arsenal but their offers were denied as Arsene Wenger did not want to release him but after persistent attempts from Barcelona, they signed their target that arrived to Camp Nou with a price tag of €40 million.
His time at Camp Nou has reached its end as it has been confirmed that Chelsea has completed the signing of the Spanish midfielder.
Fabregas told the club’s official website: “Firstly I would like to thank everyone at FC Barcelona where I enjoyed three wonderful years. It was my childhood club and I will always be proud and honored that I had a chance to play for such a great team. I do feel that I have unfinished business in the Premier League and now is the right time to return’’.
“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.”
Fabregas will have his €100,000 a week wages at Barcelona doubled in Stamford Brdige as he joins the Premier League club on a 5 year contract which concludes all of the rumors that were heavily linking him with a possible move Manchester United and Arsenal.
