Does ITV World Cup pundit Cesc Fabregas still play football and who does he play for? | The Sun

FORMER Arsenal midfield maestro Cesc Fabregas has seemingly dropped off the radar of top-level football, but it's not to say he's hung up his boots.

The 35-year-old made 350 Premier League appearances with Arsenal and Chelsea winning the league twice with The Blues and is now a pundit for ITV Sport during major international tournaments.

The Spaniard made 151 appearances for Barcelona and played an impressive 110 games for the Spanish national team winning the European Championships twice and the World Cup once.

Fabregas spent four seasons with AS Monaco after his departure from Stamford Bridge, but left the club and the end of the 2021/22 season.

He created an incredible number of goals during his time in the English top flight, amassing 118 assists across 12 seasons.

Despite his time in Ligue 1 with Monaco coming to a close it wasn't the end of the playmaker's career.
