Arsenal thought they had ended all speculation surrounding Hector Bellerin this summer after the Gunners rejected Barcelona’s approach for the Spanish talent. However it seems as if it hasn’t put Premier League rivals Manchester City off showing an interest in Bellerin, with the English side set to make an approach.
It’s been a fair few years since Arsenal were last forced into selling one of their best players and brightest talents to a rival and those days are supposedly over for good now, given that the stadium debts have finally been paid off. However this summer, one player who has been unable to stay out of the spotlight when it comes to Arsenal rumours, is our very own right back Hector Bellerin.
It almost seems strange to read a news report at the moment that rumours a player leaving Arsenal, rather than a new potential incomer. However the Metro are today reporting that Arsenal have told Manchester City that Bellerin is not up for sale at any price, given the amount that City are willing to spend on players these days.
Bellerin has had two solid full seasons with Arsenal since breaking into the first team set up in 2014. The Gunners had recently signed Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle as a replacement for City bound Bacary Sagna, but after Debuchy obtained an injury, Bellerin stepped up to the task. The young Spaniard hasn’t looked back since and is holding the right back spot down as his own, although this season he will also face competition from the much favoured Gooner Carl Jenkinson.
We’ll if there is any truth to the rumour that Bellerin is gathering interest from Manchester City, then at least Arsenal have been strong enough to put their foot down, because Bellerin is one special talent we cannot afford to lose! And ifwe ever do, we certainly won’t let him go to Manchester City. Those days are over…..
