Barcelona waived their sell-on fee for Hector Bellerin as part of the deal that saw Cesc Fabregas sign for the La Liga side in 2011.
As I was researching for another article this little snippet of information caught my attention in an article by the Guardian about Cesc;s move to the Nou Camp.
“Arsenal value the deal at £40m, which factors in a £4m loyalty payment the player has waived,” the Guardian wrote. “Also included in the package are performance and success-related add-ons while Arsenal have a 50% sell-on clause.
“Barcelona have waived any options or sell-on clauses in relation to Jon Toral and Hector Bellerin, the young players who moved from the Camp Nou to Arsenal earlier in the summer.”
This is, of course, great news for Arsenal should they ever decide to sell Bellerin who would command a hefty fee.
Hopefully, though, they aren’t thinking about selling the defender anytime soon. Now 24 and worth at least £130m if Harry Maguire is worth £85m, Bellerin is under contract with Arsenal until 2023.
Still recovering from his knee injury, Bellerin is expected back in training towards the end of this month.
