What happened to all of the funds from the Fabregas and Nasri sales? It's funny how the chairman keeps saying they can't compete in the transfer market despite the fact they are one of the highest earning clubs in the world.. add the fact that they had a good 50m in sales most of which largely went unspent and now they need to sell further to make room for transfers? Something clearly isn't adding up here.

apparently most of the money goes to pay for the Emirates stadium. whats left is divided between the owner, board,etc. A tiny bit goes to player wages and maybe some is left over for new signings, if not they sell players that we the fans/supporters love.

I thought they had finished off paying for the stadium.

no, they still have a few years to go, the only thing I can think of is that they paid in full the redevelopment of the old highbury stadium land, but the stadium is not paid yet. Maybe Kroenke can ask his wife to help him strike a mega deal with Wal-mart to sponsor Arsenal. That could add more revenue to pay faster.
