Cesc Fabregas Joins Chelsea


Chelsea have signed former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona on a five-year deal.
The Spaniard, 27, spent three years at Barca and joins the Blues after Arsenal turned down a first option to buy him.
Fabregas, on World Cup duty with Spain, said Chelsea matched his football ambitions, adding he had “unfinished business” in the Premier League.
“I considered all the other offers very carefully and I firmly believe that Chelsea is the best choice,” he said.
The arrival of Fabregas at Chelsea comes 10 days after England midfielder Frank Lampard announced he would end his 13-year stay at Stamford Bridge.
And Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is also keen to finalise the transfer of his Spanish team-mate Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid.
“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,” the Spaniard added.
Fabregas, who scored 50 times in 305 games for Arsenal during his previous spell in England, will join Ramires, Nemanja Matic and John Obi Mikel as midfield options for Mourinho.
The Barcelona youth-team product said it was “extremely important” the move was completed before the World Cup.


Jose Mourinho: “Manchester United Are Out Of The Title Race”

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes that Manchester United are out of the title race after his side’s 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Samuel Eto’o notched his first hat-trick for Chelsea, who woke from an early slumber to punish poor United defending and put themselves firmly in the driving seat at Stamford Bridge.

The result moved Chelsea within two points of the Premier League summit, and put six points between themselves and fourth-placed Liverpool.

It also left United contemplating a seventh defeat in 22 league games under David Moyes. The Red Devils are now 14 points off the top of the table – a gap that Mourinho believes is too big to make up.

“They are 14 points behind Arsenal, 13 behind Manchester City and 12 from us,” he said.

“Maybe one team collapses but for three to collapse is difficult, so for them I think it is the fight to finish in the top four.

“They will do that with their pride and tradition and fight and hopefully they win against the other contenders because now we do not play against them in the league.”
