Goalscorer Sergi Roberto wants Barcelona stay

Goalscorer Sergi Roberto wants Barcelona stay”

As per the Express, Sergi Roberto had grown anxious about his place in the Barcelona team after getting limited game time during Barcelona's pre-season tour of the United States.

The 25-year-old has a £36million buy-out clause written into his current contract and Man United and Chelsea have been plotting moves to bring him to England.

An FC Barcelona star, who has been linked with Chelsea and Manchester United, has spoken about his future at the Catalan giants.

As the Catalan press seem to love repeating, several Premier League clubs want Sergi Roberto, but, as long as he feels he'll get chances at Barcelona, a move is unlikely.

But Roberto, who bagged a goal in last Sunday's 2-0 triumph over Real Betis, says he wants to stay at the Nou Camp.

"The Coach starting me at the Bernabeu gave me a lot of confidence so to score on the opening day is a big boost", Roberto is quoted as saying by Marca.

"I'm happy. [Against Real Madrid in the Super Cup] I was happy on a personal level and I felt comfortable today, too".

Sergi Roberto has expressed his joy at playing in his "natural position" under Ernesto Valverde and wants to continue to be "an important player" for Barcelona.

"In pre-season I wasn't starting, but now in the official matches I am playing more".

They need a right-back following Kyle Walker's exit and though Roberto can fill that role, he prefers playing central midfield.
