Barcelona star unhappy amid links to Chelsea and Manchester United
Chelsea and Manchester United target Sergi Roberto is in search of more regular game time.
The Barcelona midfielder broke into the Barcelona first-team last season, but he spent most of the campaign filling in at right-back after Dani Alves left for Juventus.
But Roberto, aged 25, wants to play in midfield and he has recently been given the chance to under new manager Ernesto Valverde.
It has been reported that Chelsea and Manchester United are both prepared to give Robert what he desires if he cannot get it at Camp Nou.
“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 told Marca.
“I want to continue being an important player after not starting as much during pre-season, it is crucial that I start playing in more official first-team matches.
“I feel comfortable playing in my normal position and I am happy now as I was against Madrid [in the Spanish Super Cup] as this is more natural for me.”
