Cesc Fabregas' Chelsea departure was finally confirmed on Friday night as the midfielder was reunited with his former Arsenal team-mate Thierry Henry at Monaco.

'The midfielder's switch to the Ligue 1 club brings the curtain down on his four-and-a-half year Chelsea career, a period in which he won four major trophies, including two Premier League titles. The Spaniard made 198 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 22 goals.

'We thank Cesc for his wonderful service and wish him the very best of luck for the next chapter in what has been a fantastic career.'

Fabregas, who was in tears following his final game for Chelsea, will now be tasked with helping Henry's struggling Monaco side avoid relegation from Ligue 1.

Cagliari's Nicolo Barella, 21, and Zenit St Petersburg's Leandro Paredes, 24, are two midfielders recently listed as potential replacements by Chelsea.
