Barcelona Presidential Candidate Has Made Hector Bellerin His Top Target

Barcelona Presidential Candidate Has Made Hector Bellerin His Top Target

Hector Bellerin could move back to Barcelona in the summer, if Joan Laporta becomes the club's president again, according to reports.

Barca are due to have their presidential election next month, after Josep Maria Bartomeu resigned before his term was set to come to an end next year.

Laporta, who held the position from 2003-2010, is one of the men in the running and has started making plans should he win the vote.

According to the Mirror, those plans firstly centre on making Hector Bellerin his first signing when he's in charge, although it won't happen until the summer.

The report says that Spanish sources have said there is already a deal in place between Laporta and the right back and a fee of around £22 million plus add ons has been discussed with Arsenal.

The paper says that Laporta wanted to bring the 25-year-old to the Nou Camp in January but he didn't want to leave the Emirates Stadium mid season.

Barcelona Presidential Candidate Wants To Rename Camp Nou In Honour Of Lionel Messi

Bellerin was at Barcelona during Laporta's last reign as the president of the Catalan giants, when he was a member of the club's youth system, but moved to north London in 2011.

His deal with the Premier League strugglers runs out in 2023 but he is 'understood' to be interested in a move back to his city of birth.

Though Bellerin has had his injury problems in the past those seem to be behind him now, and he's started 12 of the Gunners' opening 14 game in the Premier League this season.

Of course that isn't necessarily a ringing endorsement right now, with Mikel Arteta's side being closer to the bottom of the table than the top, following their loss to Everton on Saturday night.

The news they could use Bellerin might upset AFTV's DT, although he won't be able to see the story on his phone after smashing it live after their seventh game in the league without a win in-a-row.

Barca have their own things to worry about as well of course, their draw with Valencia on Saturday leaves them five points behind rivals Real Madrid and eight short of league leaders Atletico Madrid.

There has also been financial worries at the club and the issue over Lionel Messi's future, although the former issues could be helped by the six time Ballon d'Or winner leaving the club.
