Sergi Roberto ends his contract in 2022, but his continuity at Barça seems increasingly complicated. The player must renew this summer or else he will be transferred, something that is gaining strength in recent weeks

Calendar of FC Barcelona

Sergi Roberto is one of the players on which the FC Barcelona has to take a definite decision this summer. The canterano finishes agreement in 2022 and has to renew if it wants to continue in the Camp Nou. In case that it do not agree his enlargement, the club will opt by traspasarle so that it do not go free in a year. In these moments, there is not consensus on his continuity and is for seeing what finish occurring.

The polyvalent midfield player or lateral has the confidence of Ronald Koeman​, that has used him whenever it has been available. Unfortunately for him, this course has lesionado more than the usual and has not played as much as would like him, but when it has been healthy always has had minutes. By this reason, gives the impression that the Dutch trainer want to that it remain , although the last word will be of the club.

According to the newspaper 'ACE', the offer that has right now the footballer on of the table is of a year more, until 2023, and a wage to the drop. The Barça is trying to recess the mass salarial by his economic problems and goes to try that all the players, included those that have to renew, go down his emolumentos. This is something that does not benefit to Sergi, that right now is not by the work to accept this proposal.

It seems that the one of Reus wants at least two more ensured years to compensate that it have to win less money. It is necessary to remember that the Catalan is 29 years old, by what still does not be necessary to concern by his age to the hour to offer him the renewal. In spite of everything, the mediocampista or carrilero does not want to sign by an alone season more and is tightening so that they give him what asks.

The club does not think that Sergi was a priority

However, in the technical office there are sportive doubts on him that prevent them improve the proposal. The club considers that deportivamente speaking the continuity of Sergi is not so important because of the irruption of Ilaix Moriba in the centre of the field and the one of Sergiño Dest in band. Both are cuajando a season more than remarkable and is 'covering' to the Spanish so much in right band as in the centre of the field.

Besides, in the Barcelona know that Emerson Royal could be an interesting reinforcement in the right-handed lane. The arrival of the Brazilian would leave without place to Roberto in the side and would do him even more prescindible. In the half, with the mentioned Ilaix, with Pedri, Frenkie of Jong, Sergio Busquets, Riqui Puig or Miralem Pjanic, neither would do fault. By this reason, the Barcelona will not go back crazy to renew him and could even teach him the door of exit.
