Cesc Fabregas was a fascinating signing for Chelsea in hindsight.
He was firmly associated with Arsenal, but ended up at Stamford Bridge after a spell back in Barcelona, and he ended up being a huge success.
It was on this day in 2014 that we signed him, just before the start of the World Cup in Brazil. We can remember the excitement.
Chelsea’s official Twitter account celebrated by posting the midfielder’s amazing top 5 assists for the club all collected into one glorious video. His linkup with Diego Costa was one of the club’s all time great partnerships.
