Chelsea new-boy Cesc Fabregas is relishing the chance to link up with his Spanish team mate Fernando Torres at Stamford Bridge.

Fabregas cost Mourinho £27 million last month and is hoping he can help Torres return to the form which saw Chelsea pay £50 million for the striker.

In an interview for the Chelsea website, Fabregas said: "I started playing with Fernando when I was 18, on my debut for the Spanish national team, so we've been playing together for nine years. We have won two European Championships and the World Cup together.

“I really like playing with him. He’s really strong, he goes behind defenders and his movement off the ball is superb. I’m sure we’ll have a good partnership together.”


The ex-Barcelona midfielder was also full of admiration for his fellow Spain and Chelsea team-mate Diego Costa, who joined Fabregas at Stamford Bridge from Atletico Madrid this summer.

“Diego has been progressing immensely in the last couple of years,” Fàbregas added.

“He is a real threat in every single game; last season he was playing every three days and he was consistently giving really strong performances.

“He goes behind the defence and he makes the kind of runs players like me really like because it gives you an option to play the killer ball. I think he will do superbly here.”


Away from the football, Fabregas is excited to be back in London after spending a large part of his career at rival club Arsenal, the 27-year-old said: "After the holiday I was getting excited to start training and playing in pre-season.

Now I’m here everyone has really welcomed me, I’m feeling great within the team and I’m happy. I knew for sure I’m going to be happy in London because I love it. For me, it is the best city in the world."

Special One

Despite regular being on the opposing team to Jose Mourinho, Fabregas is relishing the chance to link up with the master tactician, "Jose’s teams are always difficult to beat and always difficult to play against.

Tactically they are very well-composed and they have discipline. He gets the best out of his players."

Chelsea kick-off their campaign with an away fixture against Burnley and Fabregas will be hoping to get his campaign off to a flying start as he looks to claim his first ever Premier League winners medal.
