Hector Bellerin insists he does not see himself playing anywhere else other than Arsenal. The right-back joined Arsenal from Barcelona in 2011 and, after a short loan spell at Watford, has established himself in the first team since a breakthrough 2014-15 campaign. Bellerin missed just two Premier League matches as Arsenal finished second this season, and rumours of a potential return to Barca have intensified as they step up their search for a long-term replacement for Dani Alves.
Rooney not drawn on LVG’s future
Wayne Rooney refused to comment on rumours surrounding Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United future following their FA Cup final triumph, stating it would be “unfair”. Ahead of Saturday’s match at Wembley, a report in a Spanish newspaper suggested the Dutchman would be dismissed and replaced by Jose Mourinho in the aftermath of the match. United clinched the trophy by defeating Crystal Palace 2-1 after extra time and Van Gaal declined to discuss the rumours during his post-match interview.

In a scene more suited to a nightclub, Pardew showed off his dance moves with a little jig on the sidelines as Puncheon gave Palace a 78th-minute lead in London.
