The former Arsenal, Barcelona and Chelsea star has been plagued by injuries since the 2021-22 season, with Monaco finishing third behind Marseille and champions Paris Saint-Germain after playing just twice in the Ligue 1 campaign.
A statement from Monaco on Saturday confirmed the 35-year-old’s imminent departure.
“The midfielder, who has more than 830 career games, whose contract has expired, will leave the principality club three and a half years after his arrival,” the statement said.
“AS Monaco would like to thank Cesc Fabregas for that
I wish him well for his future in the club. Molts Gracie, Cesc! “
Fabregas joined Monaco in January 2019 and has already stated his intention to leave Stade Lewis II in May, but has no intention of retiring from the sport.
“It simply came to our notice then. “My contract expires in June, and I’m looking forward to a fresh start. My head needs a fresh start somewhere.
“It’s the worst year of my life, not just in my career, because when I’m not happy in football, I’m not happy in my life. I’ve done a lot this year and it was mentally tough. You just have to be more discriminating with the help you render toward other people. “
