SPAIN: Fabregas" move to Barca completed

The much talked about and speculations about the move of former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas from the English giants to Spanish champions Barcelona is now a done deal after the player signed a 5 year contract worth a possible 35m.

 "I have waited a long time for this moment. After eight years away I hope to leave you all with many great memories," Fabregas told British journalists recently.

The deal is structured in a way which sees Arsenal receive  25.4m upfront for the former Arsenal captain, with the former England champions receiving 4.4m if Barca win two La Liga titles and one UEFA Champions League title.

Fabregas was full of praise for his former mentor Arsene Wenger, and paid tribute to him in his parting words.

"Wenger is a special person to me. He'll always be a second father to me.

"I think if Arsenal want to keep being the club they are then they have to always be under his control, because he's the best, everyone respects him, and for me, he will always be the best person that I've met in football.

"I'll never be able to find the words to express my thanks for what he did for me," the Spnaish international who is capped 58 times by Spain said.

He also had kind words for the Arsenal fans.

"To all Gunners: A big thank you for your unconditional support during the last 8 yrs. Just say that I will always carry you in my heart!"

Wenger was obviously sad to see his captain leave.

"We have lost a world-class player. We are sad about it because we tried to keep him," is a ll that the Arsenal boss could say.
