Sergi Roberto agent denies Manchester City interest
The agent of Barcelona 's Sergi Roberto has rubbished reports linking the Spaniard with a move away from Camp Nou this summer.
Roberto, who is capable of playing as a right-back or in midfield, has supposedly been identified by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola as a transfer target ahead of next season.
The Citizens are said to be in the market for a new right-back this summer and have also been credited with an interest in fellow Barca defender Nelson Semedo, but Roberto's agent Josep Maria Orobitg has quashed suggestions that the 28-year-old could be heading for the Camp Nou exit door.
"Sergi Roberto has no plans to leave Barca," Orobitg said in quotes attributed to the Manchester Evening News.
"Now there are no clubs showing interest and Bara has not submitted any proposals for the player to us."
Roberto has made 37 appearances for Quique Setien 's side during the 2019-20 campaign - chalking up one goal and two assists - and the Spaniard has just under two years left to run on his current deal with Barcelona.
