Free since the end of his contract with AS Monaco, Cesc Fabregas (35) will join the Italian club Como, resident of Serie B (D2), for two years before a possible retraining as a coach. , according to Sky Sport.
Cesc Fabregas (35 years old) prolongs the pleasure. According to Sky Sport Italia , the Spanish midfielder has decided to continue his career by signing with Italian club Como in the near future. The former Barça player has been free since the end of his contract with AS Monaco and should soon sign a two-year lease with the team which finished last season in 13th place in Serie B (Italian D2).
Fabregas would be close to Dennis Wise, former legend of Chelsea (1990-2001) now technical director of Como. The 2010 world champion himself spent four and a half years with the Blues (2014-2019) before joining Monaco in January 2019 for nine million euros.
In three and a half years in the Principality, the former Spanish international (110 caps, 15 goals) played 68 games (44 goals). He played very little last season (five games in all competitions, 117 short minutes of play) under Niko Kovac and Philippe Clement.
Fabregas had his “worst year” in Monaco
“It’s the worst year not only of my career, but also of my life, because when I’m not happy in football, I’m not happy in my life, he confided when he left. J I’ve suffered a lot this year, and it’s been tough mentally.”
According to Sky Sport, Fabregas would consider a retraining as a coach at the end of his contract at Como, which could therefore be the last of his rich career as a professional player. Trained at Barça, Fabregas had joined Arsenal very young (at 16 in 2003, until 2011) under the orders of Arsène Wenger. He then returned to Barça (2011-2014) before joining Chelsea (2014-2019).
The midfielder played 721 games (125 goals) and collected 14 club titles, including two Europa Leagues and three league titles (two Premier League, one La Liga).
He was also crowned world champion in 2010 and double European champion (2008 and 2012). Bankrupted in 2004, the Como club gradually recovered. In 2019, London-based SENT Entertainment Ltd bought Como 1907, two years before they were promoted to Serie B last summer.
