Chelsea’s midfield maestro Cesc Fabregas has revealed the reason behind his summer switch to Chelsea, as reported by the Daily Star.
The 27 year old has been incredibly impressive since the start of the new season, and got the reward that his performances have merited when he scored his first goal for the Blues on Saturday when they faced Crystal Palace.
Working in tandem with fellow Spain international Diego Costa, the two have propelled the Stamford Bridge club to the top of the Premier League, where they hold a five point lead over their nearest rivals, last season’s champions Manchester City.
While Costa has been dynamic in front of the net, plundering goal after goal, Fabregas has been heavily responsible for aiding his efforts, providing seven assists.
This is the most that anyone in the league has managed, with only Southampton’s Dusan Tadic sitting on the same figure in the English top flight.
Fabregas has revealed that joining Chelsea was too good to turn down, saying: “I felt valued when I spoke to the boss – he made me feel I would be a very important player in the team.
“It was a very interesting project with Oscar, Hazard, Cahill, Azpilicueta.
“It was a project that really made me think that it would be good to come here and take up a new challenge in my life and career. I hope that it goes well.”
