PHOTO: Fabregas in Chelsea shirt after signing 5-year-deal at Stamford Bridge

Cesc Fabregas has left Barcelona for Chelsea after just two seasons in Spain.

Chelsea have agreed a move to sign Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona - and have not wasted any time in making it public.

The club have been looking to replace Frank Lampard this summer. The club legend confirmed he would leave the club as record goalscorer this summer - as it became increasingly clear he was no longer a first-team regular at Stamford Bridge.

Fabregas completed a medical in Brazil - where he is currently with the Spanish national team. He has signed a five-year-deal and will wear the number '4' shirt. He told the official Chelsea website:

"Firstly I would like to thank everyone at FC Barcelona where I enjoyed three wonderful years. It was my childhood club and I will always be proud and honoured that I had a chance to play for such a great team. I do feel that I have unfinished business in the Premier League and now is the right time to return."

Of course he has played in the Premier League before. He spent eight years with Arsenal before heading back to his boyhood club Barcelona in 2012. However things have not gone according to plan in La Liga and he is now part of the Jose Mourinho revolution.

And Chelsea are making sure everyone knows it - pinning photos of the player in Chelsea colours all over Facebook, Twitter and the website.

It is enough to turn an Arsenal fan blue.
