According to reports, Hector Bellerin is more interested in a move to Barcelona than the other way around.

According to Mundo Deportivo, cited by Sport Witness, the right-back is keen on a move to the La Liga giants but his asking price, which is said to be in the region of £40m, is putting them off.

This doesn’t make a lot of sense as he seems happy enough in north London but of course, we never know what’s going on behind the scenes. The idea that he’s really eager to sign for the Catalans is a little disappointing if true, however, even though he did come from their youth squad.

Meanwhile, the same stories regarding him signing a new contract with Arsenal, wanting a move to Manchester City, and only staying with the Gunners if Arsene Wenger does continue to circulate.

Almost as if no one except perhaps Bellerin and his team knows what’s going to happen…

At the moment, Bellerin has two years left on his existing contact. Let’s hope we extend that very soon.
