Pique confirms Chelsea target Cesc leaving Barcelona: Done deal

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has confirmed Cesc Fabregas is leaving. The former Arsenal captain is expected to join Chelsea.

Pique is quoted by the Daily Star saying: "He [Fabregas] told me that it's a done deal. He told me that now it's done. He's leaving. For €33m, he told me.

"I love Cesc so much, I know he's having a difficult time because the club doesn't value him as much as he deserves.

"Cesc has never been sufficiently evaluated at Barcelona.

"He would work well at any club in the world and would be basic and fundamental piece, but the club is very complicated and it's demanding."
