Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas has completed his move to French team AS Monaco from Chelsea, the clubs said on Friday (Jan 11).

Monaco have scored just 16 goals in the league this season, and a reliable striker would help fire them out of the relegation zone.

The Spain global helped the west London outfit win two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the League Cup in a little above four years.

The club put up a lengthy farewell message on their website highlighting the ex-Barcelona star's achievements in four-and-a-half years at Stamford Bridge.

Fabregas is now joining up with Thierry Henry, a former teammate and current manager of the municipality club, who was the Spaniard's captain at Arsenal.

"It is a great pleasure to join AS Monaco, a new project for me", Fabregas said in a statement.

Fabregas played with Henry at Arsenal at the start of his career, between 2003 and 2007, and the two share the same agent in Darren Dein.

The Premier League club are understood to be interested in deals for Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella and Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Leandro Paredes.

Fabregas has been used to being near the top of the league during spells with Arsenal, Barcelona and Chelsea.

"This is obviously a very good technical reinforcement for the team but we are convinced that his experience at the highest level will bring a lot to our players on and off the field".
