According to Fabrizio Romano, an agreement has been reached that will result in Hector Bellerin’s transfer from Arsenal to Barcelona being finalised within the next few hours.

Ben White, Takehiro Timyasu, and Cedric Soares are all ahead of the defender in the competition for the right back position in north London this season, and he hasn’t even warmed the bench in any of our five matches thus far.

Bellerin now appears to be closing near on a move to Barcelona, according to Fabrizio Romano, who claims that we have agreed to end his current contract in north London in exchange for the Spaniard signing a one-year contract.

Given that the player has shown to be a top performer in prior seasons, it seems a little absurd that we couldn’t find a better deal to let him to leave the club, but we just seem delighted to get rid of our pay burden.

 

Has Bellerin’s intent on competing in La Liga prevented certain moves? Would clubs have genuinely wanted to avoid purchasing him from us?
Hector Bellerin is expected to be freed from his Arsenal contract so that he may sign with his old team Barcelona for free.

The defender has been linked with a departure ever since he was let to leave for a loan to Real Betis last season because he had dropped down the pecking order in north London.

It makes little sense to keep him at the club and pay another year of his wages with only a year left on his current contract with Arsenal, but I also don’t understand why we would let a decent player leave for nothing and join Barca again.

Although it was true that we saved much on salaries by allowing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to join them for free and strengthen their team, they are now poised to benefit from his sale as he appears certain to join London rivals Chelsea and return to the Premier League.

I can’t help but think that a sell-on clause would have at the very least made sense, and I also don’t understand why any team would want to help Barcelona strengthen, especially given the way they’ve actively given FFP the finger in recent transfer windows despite everyone knowing about their dire financial situation.

After leaving Barcelona at a young age to join the Emirates, I can see why Bellerin feels he still has unfinished business with the club, but it doesn’t mean we should let yet another asset walk away for nothing.
