Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood insists Arsene Wenger will be allowed to spend all the transfer funds raised from any potential Cesc Fabregas sale.
The Spain international is being tipped to leave Emirates Stadium this summer to return to Barcelona after seven years with the North Londoners.
Barca have been long-term admirers of the 23-year-old and are eager to bring him back to Camp Nou after he slipped through their net as a teenager to join Arsenal.
Speculation is mounting that Pep Guardiola's side will finally get their hands on the gifted playmaker in what could be a record transfer received by the Gunners.
However, Hill-Wood has attempted to quell any frustration from fans at losing their star player by insisting any fee received for Fabregas will go straight into Wenger's kitty.
"Our transfer policy is to give the manager a budget which includes the ability to use all the money from player sales," he is quoted in The Sun.
"Fabregas might stay, he might go. I have no idea."
