Sporting in advanced talks to bring Barcelona star Hector Bellerin

There has been numerous right-backs linked with Sporting CP in past few weeks. The latest update from England suggests that Sporting are set to sign Barcelona right-back Hector Bellerin.

Sporting CP

The 27-year-old joined Barcelona from Arsenal on a free transfer in September 2022. He has five months left on his current contract.

He has made 7 appearances for Barcelona but is yet to score or register an assist for them this season across all fronts.

The Barcelona right-back has also represented the Spain at various youth levels before going on to secure 4 senior caps for his country thus far.

The 27-year-old has just five months remaining on his contract and Barcelona may consider a deal in this transfer window to avoid losing him for nothing next summer.

Sporting CP are delving into the transfer market for an experienced right-back and have done well to identify the 27-year-old as a potential target. Rúben Amorim is a firm fan of Barcelona right-back and Sporting could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.

The 27-year-old has been used as a right-back as well as a wing-back for Barcelona so far. His versatile nature can help the Sporting manager to be more flexible with the formations.

World Football Rumours

According to the report, “Sporting CP are eyeing Barcelona fullback Hector Bellerin. Bellerin’s time at Camp Nou could be ended sooner than expected. The player has been mostly frozen out and has the green light to leave Barcelona. Sporting need to replace Tottenham-bound fullback Pedri Porro and are looking at Bellerin.”

If Sporting can agree on a fee with Barcelona, the deal should be easy to complete.

Good signing for Sporting CP?

Nevertheless, Bellerin stands as an excellent option for Sporting.

Hector Bellerin has all the skillset required to be a success story at Sporting. Therefore, it makes sense for Rúben Amorim to step up his attempts to bring the Spain right-back to Portuguese giants.

Sporting fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.

It will be interesting to see how the situation unfolds in the next hours.
