Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho offered Cesc Fabregas two main incentives to join the club, according to The London Evening Standard. 

The report suggests that the Chelsea boss assured the Spanish international of a key role on and off the pitch at the club. The 'Special One' has promised the £27 million man that he will be given the license to be at the centre of Chelsea's attacking play from the middle of the park next term. 

Additionally, Mourinho has told the former Barcelona man that he will become one of the leaders of the squad from within the dressing room. At 27-years-old, Fabregas will be looking to enter the prime of his career at Chelsea, and will offer valuable experience to the team's cause ahead of the 2014/15 campaign. The Spaniard's experience to the cause will also prove crucial after the club lost the likes of Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard at the end of last season. 

The Chelsea boss will be hoping that the addition of Fabregas can help the club mount a serious title challenge and claim silverware next term. Last season proved a step too far for the Blues as they were only able to secure a third placed Premier League finish and a Champions League semi-final spot. 

However, with Fabregas already at the club and his international teammate Diego Costa expected to follow him to the Bridge, Blues fans will be hoping for immediate success next season. 

Chelsea will certainly have the players to make a major impact on Europe's elite stage. With an attacking six of Fabregas, Nemanja Matic, Williain, Oscar, Eden Hazard and Diego Costa, the Blues will be feared going into next season. 

Fabregas' presence in the side will certainly give the Blues something different next season. And Chelsea fans will be pleased that Mourinho has given the Spanish star the green light to dictate play in the attacking areas of the pitch. 

The 27-year-old certainly has an eye for goal and can use his playmaking skills to bring his teammates into play. The likes of Hazard, Oscar and Co. will certainly thrive off Chelsea's latest squad addition. 

Chelsea fans: Do you think Mourinho can get the best out of Fabregas? Have your say below!
