According to Marca, Arsenal have grown so tired of Barcelona’s attempts to sign Hector Bellerin that they’ve sent a letter to the Camp Nou making clear that the full-back will not be moving this summer.
The Catalan press has run countless stories this summer linking the 22-year-old with a return to his former club particularly when he was away on international duty with Spain’s under-21 squad.
On his return to London, Bellerin, who is under contract until 2023, met with Wenger about his future after which it was decided that his would-be suitors would be told to back away.
The insinuation, as highlighted by Sport Witness, is that any further attempt to contact or destabilise Bellerin will be met with an official complaint to the relevant authorities about tapping up.
Fingers crossed Arsene’s letter will kill this story dead for a while. We’re not naive enough to assume it won’t raise its ugly head again in January, but for now we can safely assume that Hector will be an Arsenal player this season.
