Chelsea midfielder and former FC Barcelona stalwart Cesc Fabregas revealed that it was his choice to leave the Nou Camp.
The 27-year-old made a somewhat shocking move last week when signed with the Blues, as rumours suggests that Manchester United were on the forefront of things.
“I asked Barcelona to find a way for me to leave the club. The president tried to stop the sale, but I already had my mind made up.” - Cesc Fabregas
"I asked Barcelona to find a way for me to leave the club. The president tried to stop the sale, but I already had my mind made up," the Spanish international told Cadena Cope.
"At the time, I spoke with [sporting director] Andoni Zubizarreta and the president [Josep Maria Bartomeu] and I told them I wanted to leave."
"Honestly, it all went really smoothly. I'm not leaving for any specific reason, if not for a multitude of different things, my own errors and that's it."
"If I didn't think that I'd be happy at Chelsea, I would've never made this decision. Above all, I want to be happy both professionally and personally."
"[Chelsea have] great players - young and talented - and building a great team with new signings. I have no doubt I'll be happy, I lived in London for eight years, I have friends [and] family there."
