Barcelona were expected to ask for around €3m for Hector Bellerin but they now only want €1m, cutting the fee Arsenal will receive from their sell-on clause by a third.
Sporting CP want to sign Hector Bellerin to replace Pedro Porro who is heading to Tottenham.
With Spurs paying €47m+ for the defender, it was expected that they would pay around €3m for Bellerin.
Edu, Arsenal’s technical director, negotiated a 25% sell-on fee in Bellerin’s contract when he moved to Barcelona for free, which means the club is set to receive a chunk of any transfer of the Spanish defender.
Now, however, it seems Barcelona are happy to let Bellerin leave for just €1m which means that instead of receiving €750k for a player valued at €15m, Arsenal will receive just €250k.
Despite recent reports of Bellerin rejecting a return to the Premier League with Everton, he is said to be ready to move to Portugal after little playing time in Spain.
He had said previous that he believed his time in England was ‘done’.
