Barcelona captain prioritises contract renewal but not ruling out other offers

Sergi Roberto has been a hot topic in Barcelona circles lately, with questions arising as to whether or not the club will be able to extend the veteran’s contract.

Earlier in the year, Barcelona had almost guaranteed a contract renewal to Roberto, owing to his performances and influence in the dressing room.

However, following the exit of Xavi Hernandez, Barcelona’s operation to renew the contract of Roberto has slowed down. Doubts have also started to arise on whether or not the club have the financial capacity to do so.

After a period of deliberation, Sergi Roberto appears to have made a decision on his future, reports Diario SPORT.

It seems the Spaniard is ready to wait for Barcelona to sort out their economic problems and appears willing to settle for any adjustment to his contract, if necessary.

Roberto has always had his heart set on another season at Barcelona. The veteran understands his role in the dressing room and following the appointment of a new coach, his role could be more vital than ever.

Ready to consider offers

At the same time, however, Roberto is not completely killing the idea that he might not be able to renew at Barcelona.

Should the club fail to propose an offer, Roberto will be ready and has vowed to listen to any offers that come his way.

Roberto has received interest from a host of clubs across the world. But the veteran had not considered those offers, as he had his heart on a prolonged stay at Barça.

The situation has changed now and Roberto will consider offers from other clubs, thereby creating a way out, should Barcelona fail to renew his contract which expires at the end of this month.
