Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas is swimming in money thanks to his new deal with Puma.

He has agreed a lucrative £16million boot deal with sportswear giant Puma, says The Sun.

The ex-Arsenal captain, now at Barcelona, is believed to have signed a five-year contract.

Fabregas, 24, joined Barca from the Gunners for £35m in the summer and is the latest international star to sign up with the Puma brand.

The World Cup-winning midfielder joins Manchester City stars Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure, Manchester United pair Nemanja Vidic and Phil Jones and Arsenal's Mikel Arteta in the label's expanding stable.
