Cesc Fabregas completes switch to Thierry Henry's AS Monaco

Cesc Fabregas has reunited with former Arsenal team-mate Thierry Henry after joining Monaco from Chelsea.

Chelsea have thanked the midfielder for his "wonderful service" in a statement that read: "Cesc Fabregas has today completed a permanent transfer to Monaco".

"Michy? I know him, we rubbed shoulders with Belgium, he is a player who can be interesting", Henry said.

Wow. I'm honoured to announce that I will be starting an exciting journey with this wonderfully historic Club. "I am very excited", he added.
