Roma head coach Jose Mourinho has contacted Barcelona to inquire about the possibility of a loan deal for Hector Bellerin. Sport. This came after an altercation between the Portuguese tactician and Rick Karsdorp following a 1-1 draw in Serie A against Sassuolo. The Dutch right-back appears to have played his last game for the Giallorossi and the manager and club decided to get rid of him in January.
As for Bellerin, he spent the last season of his Arsenal contract on loan at Betis before joining Barcelona as a free agent at the end of the summer window. He has only made five appearances for the Catalan club since the start of the season, missing the same number due to a muscle injury in October and spending the remainder on the bench. The contract, which the 27-year-old signed upon his arrival at the Camp Nou, is only for a year, and there have already been reports that Barcelona were keen to remove him from the list as soon as possible.
A loan move to Rome for the rest of the season seems possible for Bellerin, but the Serie A club will have to look for other solutions in the summer, given the former Gunner has already pledged to return to Betis when his contract with Barcelona expires.
