According to the Catalan daily Sport, Manchester City would have taken the idea of recruiting the midfielder of Barça, Sergi Roberto. Pep Guardiola knows this element very well having launched it among the pros on the Camp Nou side in 2010, and he would like to recover it at the Etihad Stadium.
In addition to his background, Sergi Roberto also has versatility for him, since he can both evolve as a right-back or a defensive midfielder. Another characteristic that his former trainer appreciates in him.
Until then, Sergi Roberto has always remained loyal to Barça. And it is not for lack of solicitations. In the past, Juventus had been particularly interested in him in 2017, but there was no concrete offer from the Bianconeri.
Barça is not a seller but …
Barca have no particular intention of letting one of the oldest members of their squad go. However, the Blaugrana might not have a choice if the Eastlands ever show up with a big offer.
Aged 22, Sergi Roberto is still under contract with his training club until 2022. His market value is estimated at 40M € (source transfermarkt). An amount that is anything but inaccessible for the prestigious English club.
