Sergi Roberto says 'yes' to Barcelona's one-year contract extension offer
The La Masia graduate is set to extend his stay at Camp Nou once again
Sergi Roberto will renew his contract with FC Barcelona. The player has responded 'yes' to Barcelona's proposal to continue for another year, until 2024, with an option for another season depending on variables.
The documentation is being processed and in a few days it is expected to be officially announced. A renewal endorsed by the sports area, with Xavi Hernández at the head, given the good performances the player has produced this season.
Sergi Roberto has shown that he has fully recovered from his injury and is in good physical shape. He has played at right-back, but he has also played in midfielder and even as a defensive midfielder, as in the Copa del Rey match in Ceuta.
He offers a versatility and a reading of the game that fits in perfectly with the Barça coach's idea. In addition, his attitude helps to foster the family spirit that the coach desires for the dressing room.
The player, who has just turned 31, is willing to accept short contracts and, depending on how both parties feel, continue at the club.
Happy at Barça
For now, Sergi Roberto is enjoying football with Xavi again and Barça are delighted to have a player with his commitment.
Moreover, on a salary level, the player accepted last season a much-reduced contract compared to the one he had previously and this time he will move in similar parameters. Therefore, his renewal is good news for the balance of financial fair play.
Sergi Roberto signs for one year plus an optional second year depending on a number of variables. The variables will not bind either of the two parties in the event that they decide to go their separate ways.
