English Premier league side have signed Spain midfielder and former Arsenal captain  from Barcelona on a five-year deal.

Fabregas completed his move to Chelsea on Thursday claiming he has ‘unfinished business’ in the Premier League, with former club Arsenal deciding not to exercise their first-option agreement on the Spain midfielder.

It is believed Barcelona received £30million from Chelsea for the 27-year-old and Fabregas has signed a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge, as the move was completed with the player currently in Brazil with the Spain national side.

Fabregas came through the ranks at Barcelona before joining Arsenal, where he developed into a first-team regular over an eight-year spell and eventually became captain at the Emirates Stadium.

“Firstly I would like to thank everyone at FC Barcelona where I enjoyed three wonderful years,” said Fabregas.

“It was my childhood club and I will always be proud and honoured 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 for my return.

“Yes, everyone knows that Arsenal had the first option to sign me. They decided not to take up this option and therefore it wasn’t meant to be. I wish them well in the future.

“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.

“It was extremely important to me that this transfer was completed before the World Cup so that my mind will only be focussed on hopefully helping my country try to retain the trophy.”

Barcelona confirmed the deal in a club statement which thanked the player for his three years at the Nou Camp.

The statement said: “FC Barcelona wishes to publicly thank Cesc Fabregas for his professionalism and dedication during his years at the Club, which will always be his home, and to wish him all the very best for the future.”

Barcelona have already moved to replace Fabregas in their squad having agreed terms with Sevilla for Croatian Ivan Rakitic.
