Arsenal due bumper cash windfall from Barcelona, Hull triumphs

Arsenal are due a windfall thanks to Barcelona's title triumph in Spain.

The Daily Mail says Arsenal will pocket about £2million thanks to Cesc Fabregas’s first league title triumph with Barcelona.

The £35m deal that took Fabregas to the Nou Camp in 2011 included a clause that would see the Catalans pay Arsenal in the region of £2m once the midfielder secured his first La Liga medal.

In addition to the cash injection from the Fabregas deal, Arsenal will also receive a further bonus, understood to be up to £500,000, from Hull City’s successful promotion to the Premier League, thanks to a similar clause in striker Jay Simpson’s contract after he swapped the Emirates for the KC Stadium in 2010.
