Cesc Fabregas: “My head needs a fresh start elsewhere.”

Cesc Fabregas has confirmed he will leave Monaco when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Speaking to French outlet So Foot, Fabregas said: “It’s sure that it’s over between Monaco. My contract expires next June, and I’m looking for a fresh start. My head needs a fresh start elsewhere.

“It’s the worst year not only in my career, but also in my life, because when I’m not happy in football, I’m not happy in my life. I suffered a lot this year, and it was hard mentally. You just have to stay strong. 

“But sometimes things happen for a reason. I’m grateful that it happened at 35 rather than 25 when I was at the height of my career. 

“So if you look at it that way – 19 years, almost 900 games, winning almost everything – it could have been worse.”
