The Thomas Vermaelen transfer could be the gift that keeps on giving for Arsenal if Barcelona win the Champions League.
Arsenal were criticized for selling Thomas Vermaelen to Barcelona over last summer for £15 million because of the impact it had on their depth at center back. As it turned out, it didn't have any impact on their depth because the former Arsenal captain failed to play a single match for the Catalan side this season. Despite his absence, Arsenal are in line to receive an incentive payment of between £2.5 million and £3 million if Barcelona win the Champions League title in Berlin next month. Not a bad deal for a player who didn't play this season. If only Wenger had turned that money into Gabriel in August rather than January it would have looked even more brilliant.
