Should Arsenal sell Bellerin to Man United despite squad status?

Manchester United have supposedly opened contact with Hector Bellerin’s representatives about a potential future deal, and Arsenal are believed to be thoroughly unhappy with the reports.

The Spanish international emerged through the Gunners youth ranks in recent seasons, and has become a regular first-team member ever since.

Bellerin smashed his way into the PFA Premier League Team of the Year in his debut campaign in the senior squad, but has since begun to stall on his progression, but that has not reduced his playing time whatsoever.

Part of the problem in our squad is that we have no worthy challenger to take on his role without looking towards the younger inexperienced players, although I would quite happily  allow Ainsley Maitland-Niles to try his hand at the role, with the right-footed versatile star having impressed at left-back already this term.

Barcelona have been strongly linked with an interest in Bellerin’s signature, with the player believed to be open to a return to Spain where his family currently resides, but it is Manchester United who are now beginning to show their interest in his future.

There is a chance that Arsenal Wenger or the Arsenal squad could well find themselves being overhauled in the coming summer, with plenty of talk about change with the club struggling to mount a worthy title challenge, while also struggling to keep pace with their top-four rivals.

ESPN pundit Alejandro Moreno doesn’t believe there is any chance that the 22 year-old could leave this summer however, claiming: “It all really depends on what happens with Arsene Wenger and whoever comes in.

“Is he going to clean house, whoever that coach may be?

“Even if he cleans house, I don’t think Hector Bellerin would be one of the ones that would go.

“So I believe this is a miss.”

Should Arsenal cut their losses as they are no longer getting the best from Bellerin? Would allowing him to join United be madness or good business? Could competition for his role bring him back to life?

    Bellerin has been spending more time socially…to much external events and instead of focusing improving his football…….

    He needs to go……

    1. gotanidea says:

      He could be better under different manager

      A strong competitor like Niles will wake him up

  2. But please!!!. Dont sell to united.

  3. John Ibrahim says:

    Bellerin plus 30m for Dembele

    1. Dembele cost barca £96M. Why do you think they’d give him to us plus £30M for Bellerin?

      1. jj says:

        he said Bellerin plus 30m for dembele, not belleren for 30m plus dembele

  4. Gelz says:

    Let’s just see whoever’s in charge next season, the one thing they should know is you don’t sell your players to direct rivals.

  5. John Ibrahim says:

    Ramsay swap Bakayoko

    Ozil swap Martial plus 20m

    Bellerin swap Dembele plus 30m

    get Nabil Fahkir for 40m

    get Sidhbe for 50m

    Oblak for 50m

    Total spending 150m

    1. gotanidea says:

      The floppy Bakayoko, are you kidding

      There is no way Mourinho would swap a good young player like Martial with Ozil, since he knows Ozil’s quality

      Ousmane Dembele costed 100 million

      I like the last three players, but I don’t think Arsenal would get them

      1. John Ibrahim says:

        Bakayoko just need time to settle…he was outstanding at Monaco….

        Viera was the same in his first season…he struggled….

        Martial is just a bench warmer…if he could get Ozil in return ….he will swap….besides mata may leave for free….

      Read the first two lines and stopped. Clearly you don’t have an idea of what youre talking about.. can’t blame you were feeding from Ty’s bottle

  6. Sue says:

    N9 don’t sell Bellerin to the Manc’s… they can sod off

  7. Gelz says:

    John’s no longer playing Fifa style transfers, its panini sticker style trading in the playground, how about Ramsey for Bakyoko but we want that cheese string hidden in your lunch box or no trade

    1. Boluwatife says:

      It is annoying how unappreciated Aaron Ramsey is in arsenal yet the guy puts in his best every game. Even though it will hurt to see him go, I don’t mind as long as he will be happy there. See Walcott having a decent run in Everton. You guys can enjoy your overrated Wilshere. It’s annoying how Ramsey gets all the sticks why Wilshere is always exonerated yet we all know who contributes more to the team

  8. Nothing changed says:

    Bellerin has undoubted talent IMO. He just needs a manager to improve his game and take it to the next level.

  9. Grandad says:

    Bellerin ,s main asset is his speed which invariably gets him out of trouble defensively.His positional sense is lacking and technically he is a poor kicker of the ball ,hence his wayward crossing.Maitland Niles would in my opinion be a more than adequate replacement.If Arsenal are offered £50m for Bellerin I would take the money.As for the adverse comments regarding Ramsay despite being injury prone ,many of the top teams in Europe will be interested in him if he decides to leave Arsenal.He is exactly the type of attacking midfielder needed by Man Utd.When fit he is a very fine attacking midfielder who is more effective than Wilshere in my humble opinion.
