Barca think they could get Bellerin if Wenger leaves Arsenal?

Bellerin justarsenalThere are hundreds of differing opinions on what will happen at Arsenal if Arsene Wenger decides not to sign a new contract extension at the end of the season, and one of those is that the new manager will possibly want to have a clearout and rebuild the side in his own image. Can you imagine the war chest the new boss would have if we sold Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil? Those two would be fetching extremely high prices if put on the market next summer.

But then imagine if Barcelona, who are desperate to get Hector Bellerin back, come in with an enormous offer, which they would need as Hector is only 21 years old and has just signed a new long term contract? Barca have not yet found a capable replacement for Dani Alves who left last year, and it is being reported in El Mundo Deportivo in Spain that Luis Enrique is extremely keen to try and tempt Bellerin back to his home town again.

Wenger made it very clear that Bellerin was not for sale last year when he persuaded the young Spaniard to sign a new six year extension to his contract, but Barcelona just think its a ploy to get a massive transfer fee if they come in with an offer, and they think that Hector and Arsenal are more likely to be amenable to cashing in if Wenger decided not to renew in the summer.

Arsenal may well get a massive fee, but we don’t really have anyone capable of covering our scintillating right-back. We have Carl Jenkinson and Matthieu Debuchy but it is obvious that Wenger don’t have faith in them as they tried to offload both of them this January. We certainly can’t consider Gabriel as a reliable back up can we?

    I thought Louis Enrique was leaving Barcelona at the end of the season? ? And apparently, Bellerin has recently stated that he would go back to Barcelona if Wenger were to leave…. ?Oh happy days?… Not!! ?

    Damn double edged sword!
    If bellerin must leave let’s steal mendi and sedibe from Monaco what an amazing pairing.

    Neymar Iniesta Messi
    Rakitic Busquets
    Alba Pique Umtiti Bellerin

    Manager: Arsene Wenger

    Did I hear you say it’s impossible??

    Bellerin will turn a class player one day. This is how it looks anyway. Will Arsenal sell him? If they do I hope they are smart and ask same crazy prices we were asked when enquiring for far worse prospects. Want Bellerin? Well, how about 80 million? Sure if Barkley is valued at 50 million pounds then Barcelona can pay 80 million euro, right?
    Wenger leaves to Barcelona and takes Bellerin with him? Fine. Is not like we are going to turn a loss here as Bellerin will not get out for free. I struggle to see why Barcelona would want Wenger? You don’t survive as a manager at Madrid or Barcelona if you don’t win two titles in a season. Is that simple.

    1. WhenFansGoCrazy says:

      Wenger isn’t sacked yet cause he hasn’t won the league yet! HAHA! That’s why he’s never sacked!

    Why do we like making it appear that if Wenger left arsenal, then arsenal will cramble? Good players will leave, Wenger being present or not. Van persie, nasri, hleb, song, sagna and even henry all left while Wenger was manager.
    With our ambitions still at the level they are, we are bound to lose more good players, with or without Wenger.
