Fabregas said an emotional farewell to Chelsea in their FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge in what was almost certain to be his last match for the west London club.
The clubs are close to an agreement for the ex-Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder to join Henry’s struggling Ligue 1 team, with Fabregas’ Chelsea contract expiring in the summer.
On Monday – ahead of his side’s next game against Rennes – Henry said:
“Fabregas you saw, like me, there was a standing ovation, tears.
“Since my departure from Arsenal we talk every two or three days with Cesc It has not changed in recent days. He is a player who interests all clubs.”
