Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has passed a Chelsea medical.

Marca says Chelsea chartered a private jet to fly him into London.

The two clubs are yet to agree a fee for the midfielder but Fabregas has already had a medical at Stamford Bridge.

He is said to have passed the tests and everything is now in place for the ex-Arsenal ace to replace Frank Lampard.
