Shocking: Arsenal Star To Snub Barcelona Offer, Wants To Join This Premier League Giants
Hector Bellerin is reportedly having second thoughts over swapping Arsenal for Barcelona in the summer.
The right-back only put pen to paper on a new deal last November.
Barcelona have been monitoring the 21-year-old for a while as they haven’t been able to adequately find a replacement for Dani Alves, who joined Juventus last summer on a free transfer.
Despite reports emerging last week suggesting Bellerin would be open to joining Barcelona if Arsene Wenger leaves at the end of the campaign, it seems he has had a change of heart.
Spanish news outlet Don Balon claim Bellerin doesn’t want to repeat the same mistake as his compatriot Cesc Fabregas, who returned back to his boyhood club, but it didn’t quite work out for him.
Manchester City have been mooted as a possible destination for Bellerin, and the same report suggests he may find it appealing to link up with Pep Guardiola.
The Premier League giants are set for a summer overhaul, with Guardiola ready to clear deadwood off his books.
And with Bellerin turning down Barca, this could clear the way for City to raid their rivals.
More significantly, City have tended to poach some of the Gunners’ best players in years gone by, including Samir Nasri, Emmanuel Adebayor and Gael Clichy.
Bellerin has clocked up 76 Premier League appearances for the Gunners since signing for them as a 16-year-old after graduating from Barca’s academy.
