Template:ImportReviewTemplate:Player-stub Template:Infobox Biography Francesc "Cesc" Fàbregas Soler (4 May 1987) is a Spanish footballer who plays for Chelsea and the Spanish national team. Fàbregas plays mainly as a central midfielder but has also played as a winger or a second striker on some occasions. He has been nicknamed "The Fab Four" by the Spanish media on account of his name and number.

Fàbregas started his career as a trainee with Barcelona but was signed by Premier League side Arsenal in September 2003 at the age of 16. Following injuries to key midfielders in the 2004–05 season, he went on to establish himself as Arsenal's starting central midfielder, playmaker and captain. He broke several of the club's records in the process, earning a reputation as one of the best young players for his position. After protracted transfer negotiations, Fàbregas returned to Barcelona; the Catalan giants signed the midfielder for an initial fee of €29 million with a further €5 million in variables on 15 August 2011.

In international football, the Spaniard's national career began when he represented the Under-17 side at the 2003 FIFA U-17 World Championship in Finland. As a result of his club performances, he was called up to the senior squad in 2006. He has played in the 2006 FIFA World Cup, UEFA Euro 2008, 2010 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2012, helping Spain to become eventual winners in the three most recent tournaments.
