Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Youssouf Fofana’s “Little brother” interview!
Sergi Roberto left to stay. At the end of the contract next June with Barça, the Spanish midfielder will extend his lease with the Blaugranas. There is no longer any doubt for the Catalan daily Sport who announces an official signing on Tuesday if Xavi’s team wins in Almeria, this Sunday (6:30 p.m.). A few days ago, the second Barcelona captain reached an agreement with his management for a one-year extension, plus an optional second season. Sergi Roberto will stay until June 2025 if he plays 60% of the matches next season, with at least 45 minutes to his credit per game.
A will of Xavi
The Spanish international (11 caps, 1 goal) will therefore have to whip and continue to scratch playing time if he wishes to last forever in Catalonia. With a salary reduced by half compared to last year according to Sport, the player’s extension was requested by Xavi who appreciates his versatility and experience. Arriving at La Masia in 2006, the 31-year-old midfielder cannot imagine himself anywhere other than Barcelona. Pending the outcome of the Busquets case, that of Sergi Roberto is about to be completed. To the delight, or not, of the Catalan supporters.
To sum up
Sergi Roberto left to stay. At the end of the contract next June with Barça, the Spanish midfielder will extend his lease with the Blaugranas. There is no longer any doubt for the Catalan daily Sport, which announced an official signing on Tuesday.
