Chelsea signing Cesc breaks his promise to Arsenal fans

Chelsea signing Cesc Fabregas has gone back on his word to Arsenal fans after leaving for Barcelona three years ago. Former Arsenal captain Fabregas completed a £27m move to Chelsea earlier today after Barcelona decided to cash in on the Spain midfielder.

The move to Stamford Bridge sees Fabregas go back on a promise he made before departing north London, after insisting he would not 'do a Fernando Torres' and play for another Premier League club.

"If some day I leave Arsenal it will never be to sign for another English team. I'm very sure," Fabregas told Spanish magazine Don Balon in 2011.
