Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho revealed that Cesc Fabregas chose them over a return to Arsenal so to win trophies.
Fabregas returned to London from Barcelona last year, opting for Stamford Bridge above the Emirates Stadium, where he was Arsene Wenger’s captain.
“I know why he chose Chelsea,” Mourinho said. “I don’t know why he didn’t choose Arsenal. I only know what we promised him and what he promised us.
“I can’t talk about why he left Arsenal, why he didn’t go back. I don’t know if it was his decision or the manager’s decision. We promised him a team built in the style to suit his play.
“Normally good projects go in hand with titles and he was looking for that.”
