AS Monaco convinced Fabregas with 30 million euros and a project with Henry

Cesc Fabregas



Cesc Fabregas arrived at AS Monaco in January largely due to Thierry Henry being at the helm, yet the latter’s dismissal and poor results leaves the Spaniard with a mission even tougher than first imagined.

Fighting for survival in Ligue 1, Monaco managed to convince the Spaniard to move to the Principality to join an exciting project under the orders of a good friend and be the leader of a side.

Results, however, did not change which led to the sacking of Henry, leaving Fabregas and co. to stare relegation in the face.

Monaco have acted drastically, bringing in previous coach Leonardo Jardim, as well as eight new players including Gelson Martins from Atletico Madrid and Adrien Silva from Leicester City.

Fabregas turned down the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus to join what he thought would be a more interesting project.

But reality dawned on the experienced midfielder early on, particularly after a 5-1 home defeat to Strasbourg and the Coupe de la Ligue elimination at the hands of Guingamp.

The next aim for Fabregas and his new teammates is a win against Toulouse, otherwise survival will continue to become an ever-likelier scenario.
