Only it subtracts a previous party to the stop by the World-wide of Catar and Xavi Hernández seems to have clear what do with Marcos Alonso and Héctor Bellerín in 2023. The sides arrived on the end of the market of summer to reinforce the bands and have had performances very disparejos in the first stretch of the season that have allowed to the technical body resolve, in principle, the future of both for next summer.

So much the ex Chelsea like the ex Betis signed by a season, this last after desvincularse of the Arsenal. To Marcos cost him take tirmo competitive after almost three weeks separated of the announcements of the group 'blue' while it resolved his traspaso to the Barça, whereas Héctor also arrived cold by not doing pre-season with an Arsenal that only wanted to undo of him.

Finally, after two months to the orders of Xavi, the journalist Javi Miguel ensures that the egarense does not have foreseen to renew to Bellerín, whereas the plans with Marcos Alonso aim to offer him an agreement by two seasons once culminate the World-wide of Catar. The player of 31 years adds a goal in 11 official apparitions (763 minutes) in which it has alternated the left side with the function of head office in front of the drops in defence by injury.

Instead, for Bellerín the things have been much more complicated. The one of Badalona only has seen action in 5 parties (321 minutes) in which it does not add goals neither assistances. The physical problems have mermado his performance when the team more needed him, forcing to the míster of Terrassa to bet by Alejandro Balde changed of band like solution to the defensive problems of the staff.

Bellerín Trusts to remain

In spite of his complicated present, the right side trusts to give turn to the page in 2023 and revertir the plans of the directive to leave him leave in 2023, as according to his own words " is happy in the Boat and wants to renew". Likewise, Héctor did a balance of what has been, up to now, the season culé. "There have been a lot of signings this summer, a lot of injuries. It is a project that needs time", argued the ex defender of the Arsenal.

Besides, it added that "it is normal that the teams take time in giving results. Always I put the example of Klopp and of Guardiola, that did not win at all when they arrived to his teams in England. There is illusion and the very done things take. We trust 100 % in Xavi", argued Bellerín in an interview with 'Catalonia Ràdio'. In the meantime, the aims of the club aim to a different direction and, for the moment, the Catalan seems far to convince to the flat greater culé to conserve him for the 2023/24.
