According to various reports in Spain, Real Madrid are planning an amazing package in an attempt to lure Hector Bellerin to the Bernabeu.
The Arsenal right-back who is a product of the La Masia academy and a long-term Barcelona transfer target now seems to be on Real Madrid’s radar.
From La Masia to the Emirates, and now possibly to the Bernabeu
Due to Madrid’s struggles this season, president Florentino Perez wants to make big moves in the market this summer. Dani Carvajal, who recently recovered from a heart infection, has not met his normal standards this season. Therefore, Perez is reported to have personally negotiated a deal with Bellerin.
The Spanish defender has been one of Arsene Wenger’s stalwarts this season. He has missed just two Premier League games for the Gunners. However, the 22-year-old had been in the news recently for blasting Arsenal Fan TV during an interview at Oxford. He claimed the people on the channel were “not real fans” after constantly criticizing the team.
According to Spanish news outlet Diario Gol, Philippe Coutinho has warned Lionel Messi that Bellerin could be heading to their bitter rivals. If this move happens, it will surely anger La Masia.
We must wait and see if the two Spanish giants will go head-to-head for Bellerin and, if so, who will come out on top with his signature.
