The situation of Sergio Robert It still has no clear direction. The player terminates the contract with the FC Barcelona in the summer and there is no information about his renewal, taking into account that he has the freedom to negotiate with any club to arrive free at the end of the current campaign.
The main problem with his renewal is that, beyond agreeing to lower his salary to continue at the club and adjust the Financial Fair Play, the player wants to have a new long-term contract, while the club wants a short one to be able to think about their sale in the short term.
Xavi Hernández has not commented on his figure, but Sergi Roberto is a profile that does not fit into the coach’s idea of the game because he does not have space in the midfield area and the club intends to incorporate new right-backs like Azpilicueta and Mazraoui, so he could not have a secondary role in the rotation either. His departure appears to be imminent this summer.
Arsenal knocks on your door
According to the information that we handle in fichajes.net, Sergi Roberto is an old wish of Mikel Arteta and the Arsenal would be interested in getting his services, bearing in mind that they want to sign a central midfielder who can enter the rotation with Thomas Partey, Xhaka and Lokonga and, at the same time, is a profile that fits in the right back position, where he could fight for the title with Tomiyasu.
The London team is trying to sign a central midfielder in this market, but the signing of Arthur does not finish materializing. If they don’t get it, they are interested in Roberto’s option because it would come for free and add rotation in various positions on the field. Will the FC Barcelona youth squad leave in the summer?
