‘Unhappy’ Hector Bellerin has stated his intention to return to Spain and sign a permanent contract with Real Betis.
The Spaniard spent the previous season on loan at Real Betis, where he made an impression.
His return to the Emirates, however, raises many questions about his future, with only one year left on his contract in north London.
Should he stay, the 27-year-old would also have to compete with Takehiro Tomiyasu and Cedric Soares for a regular first-team spot.
The defender, who was once a fan favorite, is on the verge of leaving the club within the next year. While there have been discussions about a return, it appears that there are some roadblocks in the way.
That’s because, according to AS via Sports Witness, the Spanish club is unable to pay a fee for Bellerin while struggling to sell players in order to improve their finances.
It remains to be seen whether the Spanish side will be able to raise the necessary funds to secure a return for Bellerin.
