Hector Bellerin Transfer
Arsenal have confirmed that Hector Bellerin has left the club after 11 years to join Barcelona.
The Spain international returns to his former club for free on a one-year deal having reportedly waived any payments owed by the Gunners. He is also taking a big pay cut.
It’s claimed Edu has inserted a 25% sell-on clause in the defender’s contract, presumably in case he leaves the Camp Nou in the January transfer window or extends his deal.
Lured to London by Arsene Wenger in 2011, Hector appeared 239 times for the Gunners making 29 assists and scoring nine goals.
He was a member of three FA Cup and Community Shield winning squads and earned a place in the PFA’s Premier League Team of the Year in 2015/16.
Barcelona have re-signed Hector Bellerin after the defender agreed a contract termination with Arsenal, LaLiga announced on Thursday.
He went on to make 308 appearances for Arsenal, scoring 15 goals, but spent last season on loan at Real Betis, with sources telling ESPN he was intent on a fresh challenge after more than a decade in north London.
Betis were keen on signing Bellerin permanently but continue to have LaLiga registration issues, a problem Barca also encountered but are gradually resolving.
The 27-year-old joins Barca on a free transfer having agreed his exit from Arsenal.
