Barcelona are expected to lose a prized 'cadet' player in Hector Bellerin, after the forward admitted he will leave the club for England.

The 16-year-old is ready to following in the footsteps of Cesc Fabregas and Gerard Pique in turning their back on the Catalan's at an early age.

Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea are leading the way in the race to sign the teen.

United signed Gerard Pique from Barcelona before selling the Spanish defender back to the club after a brief spell.

Arsenal brought Cesc Fabregas from Barca, and as yt have held on to the Spaniard despite close attention from his boyhood-club.


Chelsea have a history of snaring players from their parent clubs at a young age, with Gael Kakuta and Jon Obi Mikel just two players to have made the move at a young age to Stamford Bridge.

Bellerin told the club he would not stay after Jon Miquel Toral Harper announced he would join Arsenal this summer.

Barca are reported to be fuming that they've lost out on the duo, both of which can play up-front and are said to be leading players in their position.

United face Barcelona in the Champions League final next weekend, while Chelsea, who have duelled with both of those sides, finish their season way at Everton.
