Sergi Roberto closer to Barcelona exit?

Share

Whilst Man United have been heavily tipped to add an attacking player to their ranks, we could yet snap up a deal for versatile Barcelona midfielder Sergi Roberto, according to the Mirror. Nevertheless, with Barcelona struggling to find a replacement for Dani Alves, the 25-year-old managed to play 47 times on the right side of defence ahead of Aleix Vidal.

The Red Devils have been busy in the transfer market this summer.

Although he's ready to fight for his place in the side at the moment, he could leave the Camp Nou if he opts for more first-team minutes.

The midfielder has been deployed in the right-back role over the last two seasons but new boss Ernesto Valverde appears to prefer Aleix Vidal, having started with him in the Spanish Super Cup loss to Real Madrid.

They have been tipped to trigger his £36m release clause amid claims he is unhappy at the Nou Camp.

Roberto's pre-season has been punctuated with substitute appearances, with Valverde opting for a midfield three of Ivan Rakitic, Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta. This would make it very easy for clubs like Manchester United, Chelsea, AC Milan and Juventus who have shown interest in him to pay. However, Barcelona do not want to lose the player.

The report suggests Manchester United could match Roberto's £36.5m release clause, with the 25-year-old unimpressed with the club's latest arrival.

Asked if Roberto has a future under him, Valverde was quoted as saying by Spanish daily Mundo Deportivo: "Of course yes, I am absolutely counting on him".
