Monaco Join Premier League Giants In The Race To Sign Sergi Roberto

Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho is known to want cover both in midfield and at right-back, where Sergi Roberto played predominantly last season, and had originally targeted Monaco's Fabinho for the role.

Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the summer transfer window so we'll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe.

The player, though, could be set to leave the club, with Manchester United and Chelsea both interested.

The midfielder, who can also operate at right-back, has been linked with Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea this summer.

While NBC Sports claims that Roma, not Monaco, is the other club (other than United and Chelsea) keen on Roberto.




He has since gone on to become an important member of the Blaugrana's first-team, filling in at right-back for long spells last season in the absence of Aleix Vidal.

But with the French champions unwilling to sell any more of their stars, Mundo Deportivo are reporting that they have switched targets and approached Barca instead.

Now, it seems United have turned their attentions to yet another La Liga player - this time Sergi Roberto.

Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona have declared Sergi Roberto as a non-transferable player, having rejected a €40 million bid from Manchester United for the Spaniard.

And even though the 25-year-old has two years on his contract left, Roberto has not ruled out a move away from the Nou Camp.
