Arsenal Paid Cesc Fabregas a £3m Incentive to Ensures his Stay

In its bid to keep Cesc Fabregas at the Emirates, Arsenal paid its captain a one-time £3 million incentive along with a hike in his weekly salary last Summer. The Spanish international has been improving a lot season after season and Barcelona is keen to lure him away from London. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger bought Fabregas from Barcelona young side in 2003 and it is believed that the Catalan side would do everything possible to get their former student back to Spain.

However, Arsenal is acting very smartly in order to ensure that he would remain with the club for a long time. Firstly, Wenger awarded him the captaincy before the start of the current season and he has had a highly successful season, his best at Arsenal. It was a psychological boost for the young man. Then Arsenal also increased his weekly salary from £80,000 to £110,000 last summer, making him the highest paid player of Arsenal at the moment.
