share on:

Cesc Fabregas  has revealed he turned down Arsenal for Chelsea because manager Arsene Wenger told him he would struggle to get a place in the starting lineup.

Arsenal had first option to buy back the Spain midfielder when he was made available by Barcelona, but he joined Chelsea for a reported £30m last week.

“We talked with Wenger but he said he’d find it hard to make a place for me on the pitch as Mesut Ozil had my position covered,” said the 27-year-old.

“There were some very good options and I chose between the best two or three,” added Fabregas, who is on duty with Spain at the 2014 World Cup.

“I spoke with [Chelsea manager] Jose Mourinho and he said what I wanted to hear and things went very quickly from there.”
