One of Arsenal’s hottest properties, Hector Bellerin has been heavily linked with Spanish giants Barcelona in the last couple of months and the full-back has finally responded to the questions regarding a possible move to Nou camp. And we are sure the Arsenal fans will love the player’s answer.
The talented full-back left Barcelona’ famous La Masia for the North London club in 2011 and since then he has developed into one of the best full-backs in Europe. His speed and solid defending have made him one of the most prized assets in football and Barcelona were reportedly contemplating to take the Spanish player to Camp Nou as a long-term replacement for Dani Alves who joined Juventus this season.
However, luckily for the Gunners the interest cooled down for few months after Barca decided to persist with Sergi Roberto who made an impressive switch from midfielder to right-back. But now the Catalan club is once again showing their interest in the player and the fans are fearing that the right-back might follow in the footsteps of Cesc Fabregas and Thomas Vermaelen. Aleix Vidal’s situation at Barcelona is only increasing the speculations that the Spanish outfit might go all out for Bellerin.
Talking to Sport a couple of weeks ago, Barca president Jordi Mastre did not hide his desire to bring Bellerin back to the club where the defender started his career in 2003.
Mastre said: “We’ve already seen him as a Cule! He’s a great player, there’s no doubt about that.
“Wenger convinced him to move [in 2011] and promised him something which we couldn’t.
“We could not promise him that within two years he would be playing in Dani Alves’ place.”
Arsene Wenger has since then said that he will offer the right-back a new bumper deal to ward off any interest and the fans are going to love the player’s answer on his possible move to Barcelona.
