REVEALED! Ex-Arsenal Pass Master Reveals The Secret Behind Chelsea Move

Former Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has revealed that Arsenal have good players in the midfield position, a factor that ultimately made him join Chelsea. The 27-year old had a better chance of making Chelsea’s first team than Arsenal.


Speaking to Spanish news outlet COPE, Fabregas said,  “Wenger was already covered with Ozil, Cazorla and Wilshere, and so I was less needed (in the midfield) position, so I decided to go to Chelsea. Arsenal had an option, but they told me there had similar players in my position.

Manager Jose Mourinho spent €33m on Fabregas, and based on his performances so far the fee paid is definitely a bargain. His arrival is exactly what Chelsea needed after Frank Lampard departed the club in June. Fabregas has been used as a box-to-box and deep-lying playmaker by Mourinho to great effect.

Fabregas also revealed that he had three offers from different Premier League clubs but decided to join Chelsea, “I’ve always played in clubs where I wanted to play. At the end of last season I saw Chelsea as the best option. I always thought about a return to England, and I talked to Mourinho and realised this was the best option.

“It (meeting with Mourinho) was arranged through my agent. There was no call with Mourinho, just a face to face meeting.

“If I had not had confidence (in Chelsea) I would not have talking with (Mourinho). (Jose) showed by great respect and convinced me quickly. We were honest, we put aside any history, and I made ​​my decision after talking with him. Overall, I had three options (in) England.”

The Barcelona academy graduate had a mixed reception from the away fans in Stamford bridge but refused to let it affect him. He picked out Diego Costa in the 78th minute with a sublime pass that showed Arsene Wenger what he’ll miss this season.

Fabregas, the pass master from Barcelona academy has been in brilliant form since returning to the Premier League. He has plundered 7 assists in as many games and is the architect behind both Chelsea’s and Diego Costa’s brilliant form.
