Arsenal's Hleb to be unveiled by Barcelona today

Barcelona are expected to announce the signing of Arsenal midfielder Alex Hleb today.

The Sun says Hleb will be unveiled by Barcelona today after completing his £15million switch from Arsenal.

The Catalan giants will pay the Gunners £12.5m up front for Hleb - with the remaining £2.5m based on appearances and trophies.

Bayern Munich, Inter Milan and Real Madrid were also interested in the Belarus midfield man.

But Hleb, 27, agreed a four-year contract with Barca.

The deal is worth around £65,000 a week - almost double his Arsenal salary.

The Gunners signed Hleb from Stuttgart three years ago for £10m.
