One of the most talented youngsters ever to come through at Arsenal, the former captain became the youngest player ever to play for Arsenal when he featured against Rotherham in the League cup on October 28, 2003.
After spending six years in the Barcelona academy, he realised his opportunities may be limited with the players ahead of him, so he made the switch to Arsenal in 2003.
A very technically gifted player, who could pick out a pass from just about anywhere on the pitch, Fabregas put in some amazing performances during his Arsenal tenure.
He managed over 300 appearances in his time with the Gunners and is now considered one of the best players in the world today.
Then came that fateful day, a day which all Arsenal fans knew would come eventually. The Arsenal captain signed for his hometown team, Barcelona, the team he joined Arsenal from back in 2003. You can tell Arsenal have missed Fabregas this season with a lack of creativity in the final third at times.
The world cup winner was a fan favourite at Arsenal, and he will be fondly remembered by the Arsenal fans for years to come, despite his departure to European rivals Barcelona.
