Agent of Arsenal key man: My client is delighted by Manchester City interest

By Alex Taylor

Hector Bellerin is delighted to be linked with a move to Manchester City despite being happy at Arsenal, according to his agent.

The 21-year-old has developed himself into one of the Premier League’s most capable right-backs and was named by his peers in the PFA Premier League team of 2015/16.

Bellerin is contracted to the Gunners until 2019 but could follow in the footsteps of Bacary Sagna and Samir Nasri by making the switch to Manchester.

The Spaniard is attracted by the prospect of of working under Guardiola again after their time together at Barcelona when Bellerin was emerging through the ranks.

“He is happy at Arsenal… but the option of City exists,” the youngster’s representative told Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, as cited by the Mirror. “It pleases him and what’s more, Pep [Guardiola] is there.”

There has been no approach from Spain to re-sign the defender despite losing Dani Alves to Juventus in the current transfer window.

The pacy starlet may look to pursue his career away from Arsene Wenger’s side and secure a much-improved contract at free-spending City.
