Considering Arsene Wenger has a degree in economics, it is surprising that the numbers did not add up for Le Professeur in regards to Cesc Fabregas this summer.
Following the news that the former Gunners captain had been made available by Barcelona, a return to the Emirates was widely expected.
However, the French manager opted against re-signing the Spaniard, leaving room for Premier League rivals Chelsea to complete a deal to take Cesc Fabregas to Stamford Bridge on a five year contract.
The west Londoners’ were reportedly set to endure a cautious approach this summer due to the threat of a Financial Fair Play infringement, but Jose Mourinho’s own business credentials have gone up a notch, considering the business he has completed thus far.
The addition of Fabregas for a fee in the region of £30 million is an outstanding piece of business given his talent, stature and ability. The midfielder is set to play a significant role for Spain in this summer’s World Cup and will then make his highly anticipated return to England’s top-tier.
Able to fulfil a variety of positions, from the centre of midfield, to a number 10 role, or even a false nine, if Fabregas is in a rich vein of form he will provide a significant amount of options to the wealth of talent already at Mourinho’s disposal.
Squawka takes a look at three £82 million trio of Chelsea players that will benefit from Fabregas’ imminent arrival. Arsenal fans, look away now.
