Barcelona lose €8M on Cesc Chelsea sale

Barcelona have lost €8 million from the sale of Cesc Fabregas to Chelsea.

Barca insist they are receiving €33 million plus another €3 million in bonuses for the Cesc deal.

But Marca says €3 million will go straight to Arsenal as Barca still owed the Gunners part of the fee paid in 2011 for the midfielder.

Another €5 million goes directly to Cesc as part of his contract. The midfielder had agreed to forego €1 million a year in order to fund a golden handshake.
