Everyone from celebrities to sports stars have voiced their reactions to the Brexit and Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas has become the latest to chip in with his opinion.

Fabregas, being a professional footballer, has looked at it from a footballer’s perspective, and, like former teammate Petr Cech, thinks Brexit spells bad news for the Premier League.
The Spanish midfielder also reckons England’s top-flight will struggle in the transfer market.
“It’s a very disappointing decision and I think very negative for many people,” Fabregas said, per the Telegraph. “Personally, I see it as a mistake. I didn’t expect it, as I went to bed optimistic and woke up to this news.
“I think it’s damaging for the Premier League. It’ll be harder to sign players, the salaries will change if the pound gets close to the euro. It’s a decision that will create many complications not just in football, but the daily lives and future of all people.”
Britain’s exit has serious ramifications on the transfer market. Fees and wages could rise and clubs won’t be able to sign certain players.
According to the BBC, expects claim that 332 players in England and Scotland’s top two divisions could lose the right to play in the UK.
Of course, we’re not to know what the effects of Brexit will be on the Premier League until the move is finalised.
But the initial forecast is worrying.
