He has subsequently been reunited with former Arsenal team-mate Thierry Henry, now manager at the Stade Louis II.

The club put up a lengthy farewell message on their website highlighting the ex-Barcelona star's achievements in four-and-a-half years at Stamford Bridge.

"It is a great pleasure to join AS Monaco, a new project for me", Fabregas said in a statement. "I'm here to help the team and I'm impatient to start".

The 31-year-old Fabregas is young enough to be considered a big signing for Monaco and he could have a major bearing on the club's chances of staying up.

Key to the move was the fact that Monaco are now coached by Fabregas' former Gunners teammate Henry, with whom he won the Premier League in 2004. "I am very excited". On an global level, he won two European Championships (in 2008 and 2012) and was also part of the La Roja squad which won the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

He was found to have a pair of pliers, a spare set of clothes and a pair of binoculars on him. Police say a man was found at the perimeter fence of Moor Farm training ground and spoken to.

Fabregas won two Premier League titles, two FA Cups and a League Cup in 501 appearances in English football.

"Fabregas departs having helped the club achieve great success, as well as providing our supporters with some wonderful memories".

Monaco are struggling second from bottom of the Ligue 1 standings ahead of a crunch game against neighbours Olympique de Marseille on Sunday.

Veteran defender Naldo was the first to join from German club Schalke 04, and on Thursday Monaco announced the signing of France under-21 left-back Fode Ballo-Toure from Lille for 11 million euros plus bonuses.

The Spanish midfielder began his career in England at Arsenal after joining them from Barcelona's academy and was named as the club's captain in 2008.
