Joy for Arsenal as Barca director rules out move for 21-year-old Arsenal defender



Barcelona’s technical director Fernandez appears to have ruled out a move for 21-year-old Gunners right-back Hector Bellerin. The former Barcelona academy player has been linked with a move to Spain following Dani Alves’ exit confirmation from Barcelona a few days ago.

Barcelona’s technical director has confirmed that there are no plans to sign Bellerin this Summer:


“About Hector Bellerin, I do not consider that situation at this time,” said Fernandez. “He is a player we know because he grew up here but at the moment I do not plan anything in this regard.”

Numerous repots last week claimed that Wenger had put a £30million price tag on Bellerin in an attempt to deter any interest from Barcelona. With that in mind, it appears to have worked out well for him.
