Chelsea & Manchester United Chasing R629m FC Barcelona Star?

Premier League title contenders Chelsea and Manchester United are reportedly chasing a £36 million (R629 million) FC Barcelona star.

Reports: Chelsea Star Tells Zidane He Wants To Play For Real

According to Spanish publication Sport, the two clubs are said to be looking to trigger Sergi Roberto's release clause at the Camp Nou.

There are rumours that Serie A giants Juventus are also keeping an eye on the 25-year-old, who is said to be in favour of staying in Spain for now.

Barcelona have apparently sat down with the player and his agent to discuss a new contract, with a few details still needing to be ironed out, but they may remove his release clause.

Roberto spent most of the 2016/17 season playing at right back but with the arrival of Nelson Semedo from Benfica, he could find himself featuring more in his favoured midfield position.

The Spaniard made 47 appearances for the Blaugrana in the previous campaign, scoring one goal and assisting six further strikes.
