Cesc Fàbregas Leaves Pitch In Tears After Making His Final Appearance For Chelsea

An emotional Cesc Fàbregas broke down in tears after he was substituted off the pitch in what could be his final Chelsea match.

The 31-year-old former Arsenal and Barcelona star handed the captain's armband to David Luiz, with fans at Stamford Bridge applauding him for his contribution to the club.

The 31-year-old Spaniard had been linked with a move to Monaco this month, with reports suggesting that a deal could be completed next week.

Ahead of Chelsea's 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup, Blues boss Maurizio Sarri revealed that he wanted Fàbregas to stay at the club.

"In this position we have only two players, Jorginho and Fàbregas, so for me it would be really a problem without Cesc," he said (via Sky Sports).

"I want him to stay, I don't know the final decision of Cesc and the club, of course.

"But for me it's very important and if Cesc will go I think that we need to buy another player, and it's not easy because, technically, Cesc is a very important player.

"And I think that in the market it's very difficult to find a player with his characteristics."








Should Chelsea have signed Fàbregas to a new deal?
