While the Barcelona management is caught in limbo in regards to the future of head coach Xavi Hernandez, sporting director Deco and co have started preparing for the season ahead.

One of Barça’s main goals is to bring in reinforcements while preserving the wage bill and adhering to the Financial Fair Play regulations.

While we can expect a few signings, Barcelona are keen on preserving the services of some of the existing stars, who could be pivotal in the season ahead.

One of them is Sergi Roberto. The veteran defender’s contract expires at the end of the season but it appears Barcelona are all set to renew his deal at Camp Nou.

It appears the Spaniard is all set to continue at Camp Nou for another year, although he is unlikely to have settled for a pay cut this time out.

Barcelona are aware that Roberto has settled for salary cuts multiple times in the past few years. Keeping that in mind, they are likely to offer him the same package as the 2023/24 campaign.

Sans reports that Barcelona are waiting for a suitable time to announce the deal, especially in the midst of ongoing turmoil.

Indeed, Barça are facing a precarious situation right now, with insecurity kicking in over the future of Xavi while the club have delayed the announcement of a new deal with Nike.

There are multiple other problems aiming at the Catalans right now, so it will be interesting to see when exactly Barcelona announce the contract extension of Sergi Roberto.
