Fabregas wants to win everything at Chelsea
Cesc Fabregas says he is desperate to win every trophy on offer after completing his move from Barcelona to Chelsea.
The Blues acquired the Spain international for a fee close to €38m earlier this summer and Fabregas is keen to hit the ground running, having linked up with the club ahead of their pre-season tour of Austria.
Speaking during his first interview as a Chelsea player, the midfielder admitted he was glad the deal was agreed before the World Cup and insists he made the right decision to join the Blues, despite reported interest from former club Arsenal.
“My ambitions? My ambitions are to win absolutely everything,” he told the club's official website.
“It was very important for me that the deal was done before the World Cup. I wanted my head free and to know what I was going to do next season and where I was going to be.
“I thought I was at the right age and I believed I wanted a change. I looked at all the offers I had and after speaking to the coach I thought Chelsea was the best decision.
“Jose’s teams are always difficult to beat and always difficult to play against. Tactically they are very well-composed and they have discipline. He gets the best out of his players.”
Fabregas also hailed international team-mates Diego Costa and Fernando Torres, whom he will link up with at Stamford Bridge, with the former having completed a €41m move from Atletico Madrid.
“I started playing with Fernando when I was 18, on my debut for the Spanish national team, so we’ve been playing together for nine years,” he said. “We have won two European Championships and the World Cup together.
“I really like playing with him. He’s really strong, he goes behind defenders and his movement off the ball is superb. I’m sure we’ll have a good partnership together.
“Diego has been progressing immensely in the last couple of years.
“He is a real threat in every single game; last season he was playing every three days and he was consistently giving really strong performances.
“He goes behind the defence and he makes the kind of runs players like me really like because it gives you an option to play the killer ball. I think he will do superbly here.”
