After leaving Monaco, Cesc Fabregas is considering retirement

After being let go by Ligue 1 team Monaco this month, Cesc Fabregas could quit professional football.

The Spaniard spent three and a half seasons in the principality, and he is now thinking about what to do next.

Sky Sport Italia says that it is still possible for him to quit the game for good and that his recent injuries have made him think about whether now is the right time to do so.

Fabregas only played five games for Monaco in all competitions during the 2021–22 season. It was his 20th season as a professional player.

In 2003, he played his first game for Arsenal against Rotherham United in the League Cup. At 16 years and 177 days old, he was the club’s youngest player.

Before going back to his old team, Barcelona, Fabregas played for eight years in north London, three of them as captain. But it was hard for him to get on a team that already had Xavi and Andres Iniesta, so he went back to England in 2014 and joined Arsenal’s rivals, Chelsea.

After four and a half years of success at Stamford Bridge, Fabregas left for Monaco in the middle of the 2018–19 season because Maurizio Sarri didn’t like him.

Fabregas played 110 times for Spain at the international level and was on the teams that won Euro 2008, the World Cup in 2010, and Euro 2012.
