Sergi Roberto will reportedly put pen to paper on a two-year contract extension with Barcelona early next week after reaching an agreement with the Catalan giants.
According to Catalunya Radio, Roberto has agreed to reduce his salary and will renew his contract at the Camp Nou until the end of June 2024.
The move will ensure all four of Barca’s captains have now agreed salary reductions. Gerard Pique was the first and was followed by both Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba.
Marca have a similar report and reckon the original plan was just to extend Roberto for one year but he will now have another two years at the Camp Nou.
Both reports also reckon that Barcelona will now turn their attentions to new contractS for Pedri, Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele, and Ronald Araujo.
It will be interesting to see if Roberto returns to the starting XI against Granada on Monday after being whistled by fans when he was taken off against Bayern Munich.
Injuries to Pedri and Jordi Alba mean Roberto is a contender to start in either defense or midfield, although Ronald Koeman does have other options in both positions.
