Chelsea transfer news: Medical completed, exit announcement imminent

Fabregas looked set to complete his move to Monaco and reunite with former Arsenal team-mate Thierry Henry at the beginning of the week.

But Chelsea blocked the deal as they were waiting for their £10m valuation to be met and wanted a replacement for the Spaniard before letting him leave.

However, French outlet RMC Sport say Fabregas has been in Monaco today to finish the second part of his medical.

And the report states that a conclusion to the deal is imminent.
