Fabregas Joins Italian Second Division Como

Fabregas, who had previously played for Arsenal, Barcelona, and Chelsea, had a disappointing season with Monaco's first team.

The 2010 World Cup champion Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas will play for Como in the Italian second division in the upcoming campaign, Serie B revealed on its official website on Monday.

Although the 35-year-transfer old’s from Monaco in Ligue 1—where his contract had expired—has not yet been officially confirmed by the club, his name can be found in the list of newly certified contracts for Serie B.

Fabregas, who had previously played for Arsenal, Barcelona, and Chelsea, had a disappointing season with Monaco’s first team.

“On an individual level, it’s ending badly, that’s for sure. Every professional wants to play and feel important,” the Spaniard told AFP in May, claiming to have experienced the “worst” season of his long career.

“I still want to play. I don’t want to end like this. The year has been too bad to end like this. I want to have fun, end with good feelings,” he added, saying he wanted to join a club where he “will play, where people believe in me”.

According to the Italian press, Como, which is run by former Chelsea and England midfielder Dennis Wise, has offered Fabregas a two-year contract.

The club, which was founded in 1907, finished 13th in Serie B last season. Como begin their season on Saturday away to Serie A side Spezia in the Italian Cup.
