HECTOR BELLERIN could allegedly be about to write off millions of pounds to secure a return to Real Betis.

The 27-year-old played for the La Liga side on loan this season after falling out of favour at Arsenal and helped them to Copa del Rey joy.

Now the Spanish defender wants to make his move there permanent.

The boyhood Real Betis fan was in tears after playing his last home match at the club last month and broke down in tears on the pitch.

However a transfer to Manuel Pellegrini’s side may prove difficult due to financial reasons – even though both parties want it sorted as soon as possible.

According to @RadioSevilla, Bellerin has agreed a wage package of £34,000-a-week to rejoin – a huge drop from his £110,000 weekly package at Arsenal.

And he is quick to get the deal sorted as soon as possible in order to avoid the transfer being “a soap opera until August 31” like last summer.

The Gunners, who know that both Roma and Fiorentina are also keen, initially wanted a £8.6m transfer fee for the full-back.

However, Estadio Deportivo says that Bellerin has offered to waive the last year of his contract and around £5.7m in wages at the Emirates if they let him go for free.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta, who sent Bellerin out on loan, has not completely ruled out welcoming back the Spain star next season.

But the ace has made it clear that he wants to be at Betis.

Bellerin recently said: “All my family supported Betis. Everyone at home followed them, my dad and I were die-hard supporters.

“There’s an energy in the stadium that’s difficult to describe, it’s fantastic.”
