Sergi Roberto's pullita to his teammates after renewing until 2023

Barcelona has made official the continuity of Sergi Roberto until June 30, 2023. One more year. The 30-year-old youth squad finished his contract in two weeks and in the end he has reached an understanding with the Catalan club after agreeing to lower his salary by 60 percent and sign a termination clause of 400 million euros, one hundred less than the one I had so far. Precisely, the salary reduction to which Roberto has undergone has been the subject of comment by the footballer, who will receive around five million gross per year. "I'm very happy. Xavi told me to leave the injury behind and to have an operation and from the first moment he showed confidence in me.

I will restore their confidence with results on the field. I've been at this club for half my life and I hope to enjoy it again and bring joy back to the fans. We all have to be united and contribute our grain of sand. I have already done. And now to work one hundred percent," the player explained to the club's official media. The phrase that they have to "contribute our grain of sand" does not go unnoticed, in reference to the salary reduction that the club meditates to achieve financial fair play.

Sergi Roberto made the leap to the first team in the 2010-11 campaign, when Pep Guardiola was the coach and has only played for Barcelona, ​​a team with which he has made 316 appearances. In addition, he is one of the captains of the dressing room and has won 23 titles with the Catalan club. He arrived at Barcelona youth football in the 2005-06 campaign, coming from the youth football team at Nàstic de Tarragona. His versatile career has been cut short this past season due to injuries. A recurrence of the injury to the rectus femoris in his right leg forced him last December to undergo surgery, so he has only been able to play 12 games this past year, between LaLiga and the Champions League.

Xavi Hernández's insistence on his continuity has been key in this renewal. The footballer, who is always very involved, has had other proposals, but he has always been clear that he wanted to follow his career at the Camp Nou. The negotiations have suffered different breaks, although in the end they have been able to resume. It should be noted that Sergi Roberto did not receive any offer that matched what he received at Barcelona, ​​which finally led him to accept the new, downward proposal from the Catalan club. The footballer has signed his new contract in the presence of Joan Laporta, Rafa Yuste, Mateu Alemany and his agent, Josep Maria Orobitg.
