ESPN. The former Real Madrid man is set to sign for LaLiga giants Barcelona, as part of the Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang deal to Chelsea, multiple reports suggest.

Hector Bellerin is closing in on a free transfer to Barcelona, per multiple reports. The deal isn’t done yet — the clubs still have to sort out whether it’ll be an agreement for the transfer or a contract termination. Barca also have to agree to personal terms with Bellerin, and he’s expected to take a significant pay cut to facilitate things.

In this instance, the player’s contract at Arsenal is not being terminated, instead, he is waiving money owed to him and taking a pay cut to facilitate an agreement between the two clubs.

It’s additionally claimed that Barcelona have agreed to the Gunners including a sell-on clause meaning we’ll get a slice of the pie should he depart Camp Nou in the next couple of years. That wouldn’t be a huge surprise given how wild things are under president Joan Laporta.
