The Spain international complete his move to Stamford Bridge on Thursday afternoon in a £27 million deal from Barcelona. Fabregas admitted that Arsenal rejected the chance to re-sign him, leaving the battle for his signature down to Chelsea and Manchester United.
For Louis van Gaal, however, it seemed he was always fighting a losing battle in his reported attempts to sign Fabregas, as the player’s girlfriend had told him she would not be please if he decided on a move to Old Trafford.
Semaan urged Fabregas to make sure he rejected Manchester United’s advances and find a club in London. With Arsenal out of the equation, Chelsea was the only viable option.
Do you think Fabregas made the right choice?
