Cesc: Mourinho key to me choosing Chelsea over Man Utd

AS Monaco midfielder Cesc Fabregas admits Jose Mourinho was key to him choosing Chelsea over Manchester United in 2014.

The midfielder's time at Barcelona had come to an end and he was expecting to re-sign for Arsenal.

"Once I decide to leave (Barcelona), Arsenal will have the first option of any other club and I cannot speak to any other club for one week to see if Arsenal want me or not," Fabregas told the Arsecast podcast.

"Arsene didn't give an answer, we just had to wait one full week to see if they responded. Definitely this was my first option, in my mind I'm telling everyone I'm going to Arsenal - this is what I want.

"Arsene can see this. I didn't want to be a beggar, they know the situation, in one week they haven't said anything, straight away I knew they probably didn't want me back. They waited the full week without giving me a response.

"After the week I had to take my chance, I had Manchester City, United and then I spoke to Mourinho - which I didn't think would ever happen.

"To be honest, after I left the room with Mourinho I said 'that's it, I don't need to talk to anyone else, I'm going to Chelsea'. What he told me, the team he wanted to make, what he thought of me, how he wanted me to play, this is what I wanted.

"On top of that it's London not Manchester, London was my home."
