Arsenal defender and Barcelona transfer target Hector Bellerin is reportedly behind the rumours linking Manchester United with a spectacular summer swoop for his services.

Manchester United have emerged as possible suitors for Arsenal defender Bellerin when the season ends in May.

The Spaniard has been tipped to move to Old Trafford as a long-term replacement for Antonio Valencia.

The rumours have emerged just months after Alexis Sanchez quit Arsenal for a shock move to Manchester United.

And while United’s need for a Valencia replacement is evident, the MEN attribute the links to Bellerin. The Arsenal star has been an ever-present in Arsene Wenger’s side since 2014.

But a parting of the ways could be on the cards this summer, with United one of many suitors. Juventus and Barcelona have also been tipped to prise him away from the Emirates.

Yet the MEN say reports linking Bellerin to United is solely down to the Arsenal player’s camp.

It is his representatives who are supposedly saying the Red Devils are interested in acquiring their client.

And, should Bellerin jump ship from Arsenal to United, he will be the latest Gunners star to do so. Back in 2012, Robin van Persie controversially joined the Red Devils and most recently Alexis Sanchez.

The Holland star was wanted by Manchester City at the time but moved to United after Sir Alex Ferguson pounced first.
