The Barcelona Soccer Club continues to address the issue of renewals. After extending the contract with the Uruguayan Ronald Araújo until 2026, the Barcelona team has now agreed to the continuity of one of the players who until today seemed sentenced by the president Joan Laporta. It is nothing less than Sergio Robertwhose future, according to the Spanish press, is assured at the Camp Nou, at least, until mid-2023. The one from Mataró ended the link with the Catalans on June 30 of this year.
As the Spanish newspaper Marca points out this Wednesday, Barcelona and Roberto have filed the last fringes of the new contract and the official announcement is ready to be made. Probably next week is the indicated date to communicate the expansion of the link.
According to the aforementioned source, the negotiations between Sergi Roberto and the LaLiga Santander club have not been easy. At the end of last year, the renewal agreement seemed closed. However, the talks ended up falling apart and the parties did not make contact again until a few weeks ago.
Unfortunately for Sergi Roberto, Barça’s offer was not the same. If at the beginning he offered him two more seasons of contract, Laporta and the senior staff only gave him one more extension and reduced his salary considerably. He now he will charge less than 50%.
Although the conditions of the new contract have not been the best, the player trained at La Masía has chosen to continue at Barcelona, leaving aside other proposals such as that of Atlético de Madrid, who at the request of Diego Simeone tried to sign the versatile footballer from 30 years
Always according to Marca, the key to renewing Sergi Roberto with Barcelona goes through Xavi Hernández. Contrary to the opinion of Laporta, who was not very convinced of continuing to count on him, the Egarense coach asked that his former teammate continue at Les Corts for at least one more season.
