Cesc Fabregas completes shock move to Serie B side Como

The new signing of Como 1907 Cesc Fabregas greets the fans at Stadio G. Sinigaglia on August 01, 2022 in Como, Italy.


Cesc Fabregas has completed a surprise move to Serie B side Como.

The 35-year-old put pen-to-paper to a two-year deal and arrives on a free transfer after his contract with French side Monaco expired in June.

‘It is an honour and a pleasure to join Como 1907,’ Fabregas said. ‘I have been extremely fortunate that my career has allowed me to play at the most wonderful clubs. Como is no exception. After lengthy talks with Mirwan, Dennis and Charlie, they explained in detail one of the most exciting and ambitious projects in football.

‘This is why I am looking to build a long-term future here not just on the pitch but also off it too. I believed in the vision from the first moment and I have decided to invest personally to be part of the bigger picture.

‘I cannot wait to get out on the pitch and play in front of the fans in such a beautiful setting. The tradition, infrastructure and desire that the owners have to take this club to the next level is inspiring. I cannot wait to start.’

Como filed for bankruptcy in 2016, and were only re-founded when a new company took charge of the club in 2017.

They were thrown into the Serie D amateur division that same year, before being taken over by London-based company SENT Entertainment in April 2019.

They brought in ex-Chelsea midfielder Dennis Wise soon after and as their current sole administrator, he reportedly played a huge role in convincing Fabregas to join.

Wise said: ‘It gives us great pleasure to introduce and bring such a humble respectful guy to our football club. A player who has done so much in football and will now be a vital part of our ambitious plans for Como 1907.

‘We have been building from the ground up to get to this position, making sure the chemistry is right. A player of the calibre and experience is vital for our three-year plan to get into Serie A. It’s where we belong and what our fans deserve. Welcome Cesc.’
