Barcelona (EFE).- The winger Héctor Bellerín has no longer trained this Tuesday with FC Barcelona and is scheduled to travel to Lisbon this afternoon to sign for Sporting de Portugal.
Bellerín, who ends his contract with Barcelona at the end of the season, did not count for Xavi Hernández. The player has already said goodbye to his teammates and has collected his belongings from the sports city of La Masia.
It will be the third casualty for the Catalan team, after the withdrawal of Gerard Piqué and the departure of Memphis Depay to Atlético de Madrid. The winger arrived at Barcelona at zero cost, but he never established himself in the position.
In fact, Barcelona has made a move in this regard and has taken an interest in the Mexican winger Julián Araujo, who plays for Los Angeles Galaxy.
Bellerín’s march could mean a million euros between fixed and variable. The winger arrived with the freedom letter, from Arsenal, after Barcelona could not get hold of the signing of César Azpilicueta.
