Versatile Barcelona player Sergi Roberto is reportedly closer to leaving Camp Nou after the club signed Paulinho.
Sergi Roberto has reportedly moved closer to the exit door at Barcelona after the Catalan giants signed Paulinho.
The versatile Spaniard has made 141 appearances for Barcelona in all competitions and new boss Ernesto Valverde has insisted that the 25-year-old remains a key part of his plans at Camp Nou.
However, according to Sport, Roberto is now considered to be available for transfer, and the player himself feels that the club no longer have trust in his ability.
The academy graduate will have no shortage of takers during the closing weeks of the transfer window, with his release clause standing at £36m.
Manchester United have already been linked with an approach for his signature, but Chelsea, AC Milan and Juventus could also enter the race before the end of August.
During the previous two seasons, Roberto has featured on 96 occasions in all competitions.
