Clubs can’t keep their eyes of Bellerin!
Just when Arsenal thought they had shaken off the interest from other clubs in trying to sign Hector Bellerin, it seems that there is still plenty more to do if The Gunners are to hang on to one of the club’s most promising players.
Hector Bellerin was being touted as a possible replacement for the outgoing Dani Alves in Barcelona’s team. Barcelona were interested in making an offer to Arsenal and Bellerin, who would therefore return to the club where it all began for the Spaniard. Bellerin however has previously shrugged off such interest and stated that he was fully committed to staying with Arsenal, where he has become arguably one of the fan favourites.
Arsenal therefore may remain content that they won’t be losing Bellerin to Barcelona anytime soon, but could Manchester City now be keen on signing the 21 year old? According to the Daily Star, Manchester City are interested in reinforcing their back line and new boss Pep Guardiola has identified Bellerin as a potential incomer.
Man City are supposedly looking to replace right back Pablo Zabaleta, however the Manchester club still has former Arsenal man Bacary Sagna and so it would seem strange for Bellerin to go to a side where there is already a consistent player in his position. Even aside from that I still have every confidence that Bellerin wouldn’t go the way that many former players have in recent years, by joining Manchester City from Arsenal, because he seems to be fully committed to the club and wants to bring home major honours with the Gunners.
Arsenal fans will surely have to put up with these kind of rumours all summer, with some of Europe’s biggest clubs turning their attention to our stars. However, I believe that with Arsenal no longer needing to sell in order to re-invest in the transfer market, then there is no fear of losing Bellerin or anyone else for that matter, unless they truly want out of the club.
