Sept. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Arsenal Holdings Plc’s fiscal full-year profit doubled as the London soccer team benefited from the sales of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.

Arsenal made 26 million pounds from selling players including club captain Fabregas to Barcelona and French winger Nasri to Manchester City in the fiscal year, compared with a loss of 14.6 million in the year-earlier period.

The team had 153.6 million pounds in cash, down slightly from the year-earlier period, and had debts of 98.9 million.
