Sergi Roberto has spent the entirety of his career at Barcelona, having risen through the ranks at the club’s factory of talents, La Masia.

Roberto made his debut for Barcelona’s first team in 2010 and continues to be a part of the squad dynamics.

As he nears the end of his contract, the possibility of him hitting the exit door has garnered some attention.

But the Barcelona management coaching staff values Roberto’s presence highly, with the club naming him captain just last season.

Roberto will renew for one more season

Reports earlier suggested that the Spaniard aimed to acquire a contract renewal for two additional years.

Now, COPE have come out to report that Sergi Roberto has agreed to renew his contract with the club for one more season, with an option to extend for an additional year.

This means he will remain with the team through the upcoming season, and Barcelona holds the discretion to extend his contract for another year based on his performance or team needs.

The agreement is finalized, but his agent is still waiting for the updated documents from Barcelona.

The 32-year-old is said to be keen to play in the revamped Camp Nou before exploring an opportunity in Major League Soccer.

Although Roberto isn’t a guaranteed starter for the Catalan giants, the club values his versatility, especially as he is one of the team’s lowest-paid players.

He is recognized as a reliable utility player who can fill in capably during squad absences or injury crises.

And despite his fatal error against Girona most recently, which saw him gift wrap a goal to the opponents, Barcelona still intends to carry on with his renewal.
