Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin claims he is not interested in a return to Barcelona


The 21-year-old joined Arsenal from Barcelona in 2011 at the tender age of 16 and has developed into a key figure at the Emirates Stadium since making his first-team debut in September 2013.

Bellerin’s fine performances have earned him the interest of his former team and Manchester City, but a transfer is not an option for the right-back at this stage.


“If I wanted to play at Barcelona I would have stayed there,” Bellerin told the London Evening Standard.

“I was very happy when Arsenal showed interest in me and I decided to come here. I am not looking back, I am just looking to help Arsenal. It is nice for a player to know that big teams want you but I am very happy here.

“I have still got three years left on my contract so I am just focused on playing every single week, improving and hopefully making things happen here at Arsenal.

“I am not in a rush to extend my contract. I am happy. I am comfortable. I want to be here a long time.”
