Cesc Fabregas has joined AS Monaco on a three-and-a-half-year deal from Chelsea, where he will be coached by former Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry. "We have a big game against Marseille on Sunday, I'm very excited".

After returning to the Camp Nou, the 110 times-capped former Spanish worldwide won one La Liga title, one Copa del Rey, and one Fifa Club World Cup.

Fabregas bade an emotional farewell to Stamford Bridge at the end of last week's FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest.

Fabregas was previously Jorginho's deputy in the deepest midfield position, with the World Cup victor being the only other central player in our squad capable of dictating the play from that area of the pitch.

H-1B visa holders can apply for a green card to obtain permanent residency - but even a green card does not equate to citizenship. The United States grants 65,000 H-1B visas every year and an additional 20,000 visas for those with a master's degree or higher.

Cup matches have offered Fabregas the main chance to impress under Maurizio Sarri, with Jorginho's arrival in the summer forcing Fabregas down the pecking order in terms of midfield places.

The Premier League club are understood to be interested in deals for Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella and Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Leandro Paredes.

Chelsea have paid a heartfelt tribute to Fabregas following his departure.

Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev added: "We are very pleased to welcome to AS Monaco Cesc Fabregas, a world-class player and a great professional, whose arrival demonstrates the ambition of the club".

"We are convinced that his experience at the highest level will bring a lot to our players on and off the field".
