Manchester United in for Bellerin

Manchester United have joined the race to sign Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin, according to the Metro.

The Red Devils are on the lookout for a long-term replacement for Antonio Valencia who turns thirty-three in August while Matteo Darmian is almost certainly set to be moved on.

Bellerin only penned a six-year deal with the Gunners in October 2016 but attempted to engineer a move to Barcelona last summer.

Arsenal were keen to keep hold of the twenty-two year old though they may now be willing to listen to offers as they look to reshape their squad next season.

Aside from a brief loan spell with Watford prior to breaking into Arsene Wenger’s first team Bellerin has spent his entire career at the Emirates Stadium racking up over one hundred and fifty appearances.

He has scored seven goals in that time and was part of the squads that won the FA Cup in both 2015 and 2017.
