Yesterday we brought you the news that Barcelona could owe Arsenal approximately €4m if they win the Champions League thanks to a clause in Vermaelen's contract, which is absolutely ridiculous when you consider that the Belgian defender has not played a single minute for Barcelona so far due to injury.
Well today at his weekly press conference, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was asked about the clause, and while he neither confirmed nor denied the story, he offered a cheeky laugh very similar to the one he gave when Mesut Ozil was about to sign for Arsenal back at the end of the summer transfer window of 2013.[Watch Video]
Wenger would make a truly terrible poker player.
The longest serving manager in the Premier League will be hoping that Barca can see off the challenge from Juve and give Arsene a nice €4m that he can spend on a striker from the French league.
