Arsenal set to land £3m in Vermaelen money if Barcelona beat Juventus

Arsenal will land a windfall of £3million if Barcelona win the Champions League this season.

The Catalan giants take on Italian champions Juventus in the final in Berlin on June 6 and if they are victorious, the Gunners will profit handsomely.

Former Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen joined Barca last summer and in his contract there was a Champions League clause written.

Despite the fact Vermaelen is yet to feature for Luis Enrique's side because of injuries, Arsenal are due £3m if Barcelona win as part of the club-related bonus.
