Fabregas signing will win Chelsea the title, say readers

The Blues completed the signing of the former Arsenal midfielder from Barcelona on Thursday and responders to our poll feel that it is a Premier League-deciding transfer

The signing of Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona will propel Chelsea to the Premier League title next season, say Goal readers.

The Spain international midfielder sealed his move to Stamford Bridge on Thursday, just one day before kicking off his World Cup campaign with La Roja in Brazil.

Arsenal had first option on their former captain but decided against exercising it, as confirmed by Fabregas in an open letter to fans upon the announcement of his switch.

And readers feel that the Gunners will live to regret passing up a player of his quality, with 54.1 per cent of responses to our poll declaring that the 27-year-old will take Jose Mourinho’s side to glory.

The Blues went without a trophy in 2013-14 but are soon to complete the capture of Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid, too, with Luis Filipe expected to follow from the same club as well.

They are letting go of club icon Frank Lampard this summer but readers indicate that they will survive the end of that particular era, with only 45.9% believing that Chelsea still have work to do.
