To be fair to Hector Bellerin, just like when Cesc Fabregas left Arsenal for FC Barcelona, you can understand why a young player who came through the youth system of his boyhood club would be keen to go back and play for them at some point, especially when that club is one of the biggest and most successful in the football world.
So even if our Spanish right back stays in north London and is an Arsenal player next season, I think it is only a matter of time before he signs for Barca, assuming that they want him to of course. It may not happen just yet though, despite the fact that some media sources were talking about the transfer as a certainty.
Bellerin himself has thrown some shade at the rumours, The Mirror reports, with a tweet suggesting that the rumours are nothing more than speculation.
He wrote, “Don’t believe everything you read.”
So does this mean that the reports of his transfer to the Nou Camp are wrong? Maybe but I am not so sure. It could just mean that the reports in the Catalan press that he has already agreed terms with Barca are jumping the gun. Bellerin could just be allowing Wenger and Arsenal the breathing space to go and find a replacement without the added pressure that other clubs could exert if they know we are desperate.
The right back has already showed thanks and loyalty to the manager and club who gave him the chance to play and prove himself at the top level and he has just recently signed a long term contract, so what do you guys make of his tweet?
