Cesc Fabregas has declared his desire to win “absolutely everything” with Chelsea this season following his move from Barcelona.

The 27-year-old signed a five-year deal with the Blues last month after a switch back to his former club Arsenal failed to materialise.

And the Spain international has revealed how a conversation with manager Jose Mourinho convinced him that Stamford Bridge was the right destination for him.

“My ambitions? My ambitions are to win absolutely everything,” Fabregas told Chelsea’s website.

“It was very important for me that the deal was done before the World Cup. I wanted my head free and to know what I was going to do next season and where I was going to be.

“I thought I was at the right age and I believed I wanted a change. I looked at all the offers I had and after speaking to the coach I thought Chelsea was the best decision.

“Jose’s teams are always difficult to beat and always difficult to play against. Tactically they are very well-composed and they have discipline. He gets the best out of his players.”
