Arsenal’s former defender Hector Bellerin’s transfer to Barcelona is currently the worst transfer of the season. Hence, his future with the La Liga club is in doubt.
However, this also confirms that Mikel Arteta made the correct decision to release him. The Gunners allowed to let him to leave on a free transfer.
THE STRUGGLES OF HECTOR BELLERIN AT BARCELONA
Arsenal made the decision of letting Hector Bellerin leave on a free transfer in this summer transfer window. The right-back was not part of Mikel Arteta’s plans for the season. Hence, many thought that he would join Real Betis on a free transfer. This is because the right-back was on loan at Real Betis last season. However, Barcelona won the race for his signature. This is because they allowed Sergino Dest to leave on loan to AC Milan.
However, since then, nothing has worked well for the defender at Barcelona. Hector Bellerin only manages to find a place for himself on the bench or is out due to injuries. Hence, it looks like his troubles at Arsenal have followed him to the La Liga giants. The right-back is currently out of contract in the next summer transfer window. Hence, there is very less chance of a contract renewal at Barcelona.
ARSENAL HAVE MADE THE RIGHT DECISION TO LET HIM GO ON A FREE TRANSFER
A report has given Hector Bellerin a 4.42 rating for his performances. This is even less than Franck Kessie. Hence, it is quite clear that Bellerin is struggling as he struggled in his last years at Arsenal. Many people at that time were furious that manager Mikel Arteta loaned him out. However, the signing of Takheiro Tomiyasu and the emergence of Ben White as right-back have shut down the critics of Arteta.
Arsenal’s manager has also said that he wishes Hector Bellerin in his career going ahead. He further said,
“I love the kid, I love what he’s done for the club, he’s someone that I have really strong feelings about and I wish him all the best because I know that it’s one of his dreams to play there. “Hopefully he can fulfil his dream and get his career back to where he can because he’s still very young and has a lot he can do.”
Arsenal fans also hope that one of their best players has a long career with Barcelona. Hector Bellerin has also said that he wants to sign a new contract extension. However, the final decision is yet to be made by head coach Xavi.
