The north London club opted against activating their buy-back clause to re-sign the midfielder when he left Barcelona in 2011, which led to him moving to Stamford Bridge.
Fabregas had a hugely successful spell in west London, helping the club to two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and a League Cup during his five-year spell before leaving for Monaco.
But he has admitted it was not the move he originally hoped for and was in fact keen on a return to the club that made his name.
“My agent Darren Dein spoke to Arsene [Wenger], he didn’t give him an answer to be honest, then we had to wait one full week to see if Arsenal responded,” Fabregas told the Arsecast podcast.
