The expectation all week has been that the World Cup winner will join the Ligue 1 strugglers after falling down the pecking order in west London.
And now that has been confirmed by Monaco, who have announced the 31-year-old’s arrival via Twitter.
Fábregas is expected to make his debut in Sunday evening’s clash with Marseille, before Les Monégasques host Nice – a side managed by another of his Arsenal team-mates, Patrick Vieira.
“It is a great pleasure to join AS Monaco, a new project for me, the former Barcelona midfielder told the club’s official website.
“The group is of quality with young players and a young coach. I’m here to help the team, I’m looking forward to starting, we have a great match to play in Marseille on Sunday.
“I am very excited.”
