Cesc Fabregas has revealed how Jose Mourinho put Chelsea before his own family to persuaded him to join the Blues.
Former Arsenal skipper Fabregas was in two minds over whether he could actually cross the London divide and become a Stamford Bridge player when Barcelona agreed to sell him.
But any doubts were swept away when the Special One paid a flying visit to Catalonia – even though it left him in the dog-house at home.
Fabregas said: “When I knew Chelsea wanted to buy me, I studied the situation well and talked things over with my family.
“But then I spoke to the boss, on the day Jose came to see me.
“I remember it was a Sunday afternoon, and he flew out, missing his son’s final game of the season.
“For him to do that was to make a great effort, to tell me how much he wanted me to sign for Chelsea. That gave me a real lift.”
