BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -- Cesc Fabregas' transfer to Barcelona is complete after the Spain midfielder signed a five-year contract Monday.

The Spanish club says the 24-year-old Fabregas passed an external medical revision and then an "exhaustive" fitness test with club doctors before signing his new deal that brings him back to his boyhood club after eight seasons with Arsenal.

Terms of Fabregas' contract were not announced, but Spanish media reported the price tag of the transfer at about $57 million.
