‘A lot can happen this summer’ – Bellerin

Hector Bellerin has appeared to pave the way for a move to Barcelona in this transfer window and has said ‘a lot can happen this summer’.

The Arsenal full-back signed a new long term deal at the Emirates stadium earlier this year but started his career at the Camp Nou and appears to be open to a return to the Blaugrana.

“You never know what can happen, but I have a contract and when I finish my holidays after the Euros I will have to go back there,” Bellerin told El Mundo Deportivo.

“The truth is that every player of a top level wants to play in the Champions League, especially when I've been playing in it for two years.

“As a team, we didn't achieve qualification and it's something that we want to correct, but as a player, I repeat: it's an important competition.

“It's a great thing to know about the interest of a club like Barca, the club where I grew up. I don't know anything at the moment. I'm an Arsenal player and we'll see what happens.

“It's always been very good in London, my family settled there with me, although now, for family reasons, they have had to return to Barcelona. I have a tougher time now because I'm a family person, I depend on them a lot, and it'll be a new challenge to be without them.

“I haven't talked to anyone. I haven't talked to the club. I know a lot of things are being talked about but as a player, the club haven't told me anything, there has still not been any contact.

“A lot can happen this summer.”
