Barcelona have confirmed the signing of Hector Bellerin on a free transfer from Arsenal. The right-back reportedly terminated his contract with the Gunners, where he had a year left. Bellerin signed a one-year deal at the Camp Nou as he will soon be presented as a Blaugrana player. The Hector Bellerin saga is finally over, as the right-back re-signs with boyhood club Barcelona. The Spanish full-back returns to the Camp Nou 11 years after departing their academy. Bellerin was expected to leave Arsenal throughout the summer. He was expected to leave permanently in 2021 but could only join Real Betis on a loan deal. The right-back had a terrific season with the La Liga side, helping them win the Copa Del Rey last season. Betis were clear favourites to re-sign Bellerin during this window but complicated matters after refusing to pay Arsenal’s asking price. The Gunners even rejected a low offer from the Spanish side, who later urged Bellerin to terminate his contract with the club.
