Agent responds to claims Busquets and Roberto set for Barcelona exit

The agent of midfield pair Sergi Busquets and Sergi Roberto denies they're about to leave Barcelona.

It's been suggested both Spain internationals could be part of a massive summer clearout at Barca.

But Jose Maria Orobitg, speaking on El Partidazo de COPE, offered a blunt response to the news.

Orobitg insisted "no one from the club has told" him that both are on the market and he has assumed that "both will continue in the Barça squad next season".

Discussing their sale plans yesterday, Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu announced the only 'untouchable' players were "Messi, Ter Stegen, Lenglet, De Jong, Semedo, Dembélé and Griezmann".
