Good and bad news for Arsenal on Bellerin transfer

Even though the Arsenal and Spain international star Hector Bellerin still has three years left to run on his current contract, which he signed last summer after securing his place in the Arsenal first team and doing so well in his 36 Premier League games that he was voted into the PFA team of the season.

The speedy young Spaniard has never looked back after the injury problems of Debuchy and Chambers gave him his chance and the right back continues to go from strength to strength. The only problem with that is that some of the biggest clubs in the world are taking notice and the rumours are that both Man City and Barcelona have serious transfer interest in the 21-year old Gunner.

Just last week The Mirror and others were reporting that Arsenal were offering him a new five year deal to reward his form and fend off any transfer bids and of course the best thing for us would be if he signed it as quickly as possible.

If not or until he does we have to hope that nobody can prise him away, so the report by the Evening Standard which says that Man City will give Pep Guardiola whatever funds he needs to boost the squad is not good news for Arsenal, especially as the former Barcelona boss is said to be very keen on Bellerin.

There was also some good news for Arsenal about our starlet in the Evening Standard, as the other main suitor Barcelona are said to be in more of a rush to sign a new right back, so with that in mind they are looking elsewhere and the Juventus and Swiss international right back Stephan Lichtsteiner could now be their main target.

Do you think Bellerin will sign a new deal or will this turn into a proper transfer tussle?

  1. Lol… Bad news indeed. As if they will just pick him up like that. They should bring 50 million + De bruyne. Am fine with that

  2. Come off it,we all know that Bellerin isn’t going anywhere until the end of his contract, and that is the only way. If he signs a new contract he will be here for the rest of his career.

    Wenger will never let Barca steal a player like they did with Fabregas, and he only sells City our ageing or out of contract players. We should simply stop worrying about Bellerin completely until he indicates otherwise.

  3. World exclusive, Evening Standard states that Man City will give Pep Guardiola whatever funds he needs to boost the squad!

  4. I think that Pep will be looking to significantly strengthen his squad at the end of this season when he will have a good understanding of where the weaknesses are. The main arsenal players at risk of being sold to manc are ozil and sanchez. If they do not sign new contracts then I think arsenal will sell in summer 2017, I cannot see arsenal allowing these players to run their contracts down and leave for free.

  5. funny how Jose is termed as the cheque book manager yet no one bats an eye on pep who since joining city has just been splashing money. So much for him bringing academy players.

    1. If pep has a reputation for bringing through academy players then it will be from his time as Barcelona manager. If your academy is La Masai then it is not very difficult.

    2. Be that as it may, at least Pep is making City play attractive football and bringing the best out of his players…United on the other hand are still shite!
