Stepson of Monaco star Cesc signs with Rayo Vallecano

The stepson of former Chelsea and Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has joined Rayo Vallecano.

Joseph Taktouk, 17, is revelling in the opportunity given him by Madrid's third biggest club.

His mum is model and Fabregas' partner Daniela Semaan.

And alongside photos of himself signing, he posted the words: "God is great.

"Proud and very happy day for signing with Rayo Vallecano.

"It has been a long journey to get here and there is much more to go.

"A big thank you to my family for helping me achieve this."

Lebanese businessman Elie Taktouk is Joseph's biological father.

And Monaco midfielder Fabregas too quickly joined in the online praise for Taktouk Junior: "That's my boy."
