Bellerín escapes to Barça: close to renewing with Arsenal

The Spanish side, who was linked this summer with Barcelona and Manchester City, is close to renewing with the Gunners according to The Guardian.

Hector Bellerin is very close to renewing with Arsenal, ending with the rumors that linked him last summer with both FC Barcelona and Manchester City, as published today The English newspaper The Guardian.

Bellerin’s representative, Albert Botines, spoke with the English newspaper that confirmed that the Spanish defender is in negotiations with the club of the north of London and that these are well directed.

“We are talking and now we are much closer than we were two weeks ago. In a normal situation, he will sign,” he said. In addition, he also talked about Bellerín’s mood regarding the club he currently plays in and in which, according to his representative, he is very happy. “Héctor is very happy with Arsenal and this is the fourth time he has signed a new contract at the club and it is clear that he has made good progress.”

Less than a month ago, Bellerín already ruled out a possible Arsenal exit for Barca in an interview with DW Channel in which he said that if the club called him “he would not take the phone.”

The 21-year-old Spaniard is one of the most promising supporters of the current situation. Last year he was confirmed as a starting lineup for Wenger (44 games in total, scored one goal and eight assists) and went on to become the Premier League’s top eleven for the PFA (Professional Football Association) . His good performance earned him the inclusion for Del Bosque’s assistant list for the Eurocopa de France and ended up entering the final list for the injury of Daniel Carvajal.
