Barcelona's Hleb: Arsenal face more player departures

Barcelona midfielder Alex Hleb says Arsenal's strict wage cap could lead to more stars quitting Emirates stadium.

The Belarussian quit the Emirates last year to double his money to around £60,000 a week at Barcelona while Mathieu Flamini was quids in after joining AC Milan.

Hleb said: "Finances are always an issue at Arsenal. Players arrive at the club, have a good season and get a lot of better offers from other teams.

"A football life is short. You want to enjoy football but you also need to earn money."
