According to El Confidencial, Barcelona have been tapping up our Hector Bellerin.

I spend most of my waking hours hating Barcelona and wanting to fight their players. In fact, some days, I set my alarm a bit earlier just so I can get up to hate them longer. Now, as if I didn’t need any more reason to dislike their smug little faces, it’s being reported that the Catalan club have been tapping up our 21-year-old right-back behind our backs.

Not only does this break FIFA rules, but it’s unethical as hell and just not cricket (or football, in this case).

According to the Spanish publication, the La Liga club has been contacting Bellerin after they said goodbye to Dani Alves, despite the fact that they denied interest in him just recently.

Why does this worry me? Because Bellerin, I’m sure, would love to return to Barcelona, whether he admits it even to himself or not.
