Cesc Fabregas’ spell at Monaco has come to an underwhelming end after an injury-filled stint in France.

The former Chelsea and Arsenal man joined Monaco amid a lot of optimism in 2019, but has only made 67 appearances for the Ligue 1 side in more than two years.

Last season, he only managed to feature five times, and Monaco have now opted against offering the Spaniard a new deal.
