Francesc "Cesc" Fàbregas Soler (born May 4, 1987 in Arenys de Mar, Catalonia, Spain) is a Spanish/Catalan football midfielder, who currently plays for English club Arsenal. signed him from ArsenalFC Barcelona in the middle of 2003, before Fabregas could sign a professional contract with the Spanish giants. He has been touted as one of of the best of Spain's next generation of footballers.

'Cesc', as he prefers to be known, made history in October 2003 when he became the youngest player to turn out for Arsenal, in the Carling Cup tie against Rotherham United. The Spaniard, was aged just 16 years 177 days when he took to the pitch for the Gunners for the first time.

It was not until the start of the 2004-05 season that Fàbregas started making first team appearances in matches outside the League Cup. His first match was against Manchester United in the Community shield; he then had four successive Premier League starts. Fabregas impressed many observers in his first four appearances, claiming a goal against Blackburn in a 3–0 victory. Soon after, he became the second youngest goalscorer in Champions league history after scoring the third goal against Rosenborg, in Arsenal's 5–1 victory.
'Cesc' is a precocious talent of the highest order. His ability for one so young is actually quite frightening. Now watch some of Fabregas assists, goals and misses!
