Albert Botínes, agent of the lateral, has confirmed the arrival of Bellerín to the Barcelona group. The footballer returns home and will sign for a season when he resolves his departure from Arsenal.. Héctor Bellerín (27 years old) has almost done it with Barcelona. The Spanish side would have reached an agreement with Arsenal for the termination of his contract , a few hours after the end of the transfer market, and is waiting for the “paperwork” to be a Barcelona footballer, as Cadena SER has advanced. Albert Botines , Héctor Bellerín’s agent, has confirmed that the former Barcelona youth player returns to what was his home. “Bellerín has cut his salary to sign for Barça. He had a very high salary at Arsenal. He has made an important effort. If nothing strange happens, Bellerín will be a Barça player. I found out this noon that we were coming, but we were talking. He is happy to return home, although he hasn’t been able to talk to Xavi yet”.
Bellerin has lived some frantic last hours. After playing for Betis last season and once the door of the Verdiblanco club was closed, Bellerín wanted to leave Arsenal, since his contract ended in 2023, and it seems that he has finally achieved it with the freedom letter. Despite the interest of Real Betis, the Verdiblanco team’s problems in meeting the salary limit have buried many of the options it had with Bellerín . A very different situation from that of Sampdoria, which could have recruited him with immediate effect, although the refusal of the Spanish side frustrated the operation. Bellerin expected the call to come from a Spanish team and was willing to wait until the last second, as it will end up being. For this reason, Barcelona has managed to close its return. In addition, Bellerín will be full rights of Barcelona, since the one from Badalona signs for one year with the Catalan club.
