Man City rival Man Utd, Chelsea as Roberto waits for Barcelona contract talks

Barcelona management again face a battle to keep Sergi Roberto away from Premier League suitors ahead of the January market.

The midfielder attracted enquiries from Chelsea and Manchester United last month before eventually committing himself to the Nou Camp.

However, Roberto's situation remains clouded and Don Balon says there is now interest arriving from Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

The midfielder has not heard from Barca about a new deal, with his current agreement carrying an affordable €40m buyout clause.

With City boss Guardiola now joining Chelsea and United in their pursuit, Barca risk losing Roberto midseason unless they upgrade his deal.
