Barcelona has re-signed Hector Bellerin on a one-year deal.
Arsenal’s longest-serving player at the club has joined his boyhood club Barcelona on a one-year contract.
He spent the last season out on loan at Real Betis and wanted a fresh challenge this summer.
Betis wanted to sign him permanently this summer but couldn’t make their finances work.
According to reports, Bellerin took a wage cut to facilitate his return to Camp Nou.
