Arsenal ace Cesc will take Guardiola Barcelona spending past €350M

The arrival of Cesc Fabregas from Arsenal will see Barcelona's spending under coach Pep Guardiola go past the €350 MILLION mark. With a €40 million agreement in the offing, Barca so far have spent €311.5 million since Guardiola's appointment four seasons ago.

Some have been spectacular successes as in the case of former Manchester United defender Gerard Pique, who came in exchange for €5 million and ex-Sevilla fullback Dani Alves, who arrived for €29m, but superior performances led to bonuses being added to make the fee €34.5 million.

But there's also been spectacular flops like Henrique, Keirrison, Martin Caceres and Alex Hleb.
