“Bellerin is a magnificent player, but at the moment we don’t plan [to sign him].”- Robert Fernandez
Alves is set to leave Barcelona this summer on a free transfer, and Juventus are likely to eb the player’s destination.
Further, according to Fernandez Barca are not looking to replace the player this summer and will be putting their faith in Aleix Vidal to cover the position left empty by Alves’ departure from the club.
Bellerin enjoyed an excellent season at the Emirates this season having broken into the first team as the first choice right-back ahead of Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers.
