Manchester City Interested in Signing Sergi Roberto

City transfer chief Txiki Begiristain is said to have led Manchester City’s interest in signing the versatile Sergi Roberto. He is backed by Pep Guardiola’s blessing.

According to a story in El Mundo Deportivo, Manchester City has even told Barcelona of their interest. However, the report also clarifies how any transfer would need to be a straight-forward money deal.

The name came up between the two clubs in informal trade talks between the two clubs. Both clubs are keen on reciprocal transfers, with full-backs Nelson Semedo and Joao Cancelo saying they could be involved in this summer’s swap deal.

Meanwhile, 28-year-old Sergi Roberto is signed at Camp Nou, where he spent his entire professional career, until 2022, with his deal expected to reach a crucial point later this year.

He has made 274 first-team appearances for the Blaugrana and, despite being naturally a central midfielder, has frequently been deployed ahead of Semedo in recent seasons at the right-back.

With six La Liga championships, two Champions League titles and five Copa del Rey victories, Sergi Roberto has played a significant role in the squad.
