Real Madrid to offer player-exchange in order to win race for Bellerin?

Real Madrid are the latest name to be linked with a move to sign Hector Bellerin from Arsenal.

Barcelona are claimed to be eyeing a summer move for the Spain international, citing the Gunners dismal season as well as the doubt over the club’s main assets as weakness, and will try and use that to lure Bellerin away from the club.

The right-back has fallen out of Arsene Wenger’s first-team plans since adopting a new 3-4-2-1 formation, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain favoured at right wing-back, although the French boss has claimed that the young defender has failed to recover from an injury earlier in the season, and is a part of his plans.

Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are also believed to hold an interest in the 22 year-old, and with Pep Guardiola in charge of the former, they could well be of interest to Hector should he decide to leave.

Arsenal have sold a number of key players to the Citizens over the past decade, but I no longer believe we have such a need to sell to our big-spending rivals, with the Emirates now paid off in full.

We also have no need to succumb to pressure from the player or rival clubs to sell, with Bellerin having been tied down to a new six-year deal only this season, tying him to Arsenal until 2023 should we wish to.

Real Madrid are the latest club to be linked with a move for our star, and are said to be looking to give us Danilo in exchange, following the £26 Million signings failure to break into the first-team since his move from Porto.

It is claimed this offer may tempt us into considering his sale, but I can’t personally see him going, not unless a monstrous offer comes in at least.

Could Danilo take over from Bellerin? Would Bellerin want to leave if we failed to earn Champions League football next season?

    So a player who found it hard to break into the first 11 is exchanged with the starter.. they are really joking. I think they don’t know that all Barca former players have Barcelona DNA, so let them sing but at the end of the day Hector goes back to Barca

    Any deal involving Marcelo one way or the other is fine with me

    1. Quantic Dream says:

      Lol..Twig, you don’t understand…give Marcelo to Wenger and 8 months down the road he will be playing like Gibbs with complacency his middle name.

        So true

  4. Janssen says:

    This is becoming boring but I have to say it; Bellerin like all other Arsenal talent has regressed this season. Whether he stays or goes, whether the owner gets a lot of money for him or too little, does it really matter to our next season? Sure Bellerin could probably be world class if he had a manager with a background and appreciation for defending (Koeman, Conte, Mourinho, Simeoni, Allegri, Blanc) but if Bellerin stays with Arsenal and Wenger remains we have probably seen the best of Bellerin already.

  5. Break-on-through says:

    These city and Barca want Bellerin, yet we have some fans who don’t rate him so highly anymore.
    I hear some say that Bellerin can’t hit a final pass nor can he shoot, I don’t know what fullbacks people do be watching, there are some who get a fair few goals but very rare all the same, same again about delivery it is very rare to see a fullback who can deliver like a wing forward.

    Fullbacks by nature have to be all round type of players, it is the only position with that profile set out for them. Your gonna have some or even most lacking something in it as being capable at everything on a consistent basis is a very difficult juggling act, not many live up to it if you watch them long enough. Bellerin is young and unfortunately he is in a team devoid of confidence, devoid of characters, sometimes devoid of any real cover, and for a moment he’s been devoid of support. He’s gonna be some player when he gets that experience, Real know it, so do Barca and so did PSG.
