Paulinho capture pushes Man Utd, Chelsea target closer to exit

Paulinho capture pushes Man Utd, Chelsea target closer to exit

Barcelona had their pre-season tour in the U.S. and Roberto was left out of the party in one of their games, he also featured for 28 minutes on their return to Spain against Chapecoense and he played a bit-part against their Capital rivals Real Madrid in the Spanish Cup first leg.

Reports have claimed that Chelsea and Manchester United are both prepared to meet Roberto's €40 million release clause, but he has been assured by Valverde that he has a part to play for Barca under his stewardship.

The Red Devils need a long term replacement for veteran right back Antonio Valencia and someone like Roberto could be a great signing.

Roberto already finds himself competing with Rafinha, Denis Suarez, Nelson Semedo, Paulinho and youngster Carles Alena for a starting place.

Thoughts on the Roberto to Manchester United rumuors?

Earlier this month Mundo Deportivo reported that Jose Mourinho had launched a €40m (£36.4m, $46.8m) offer which matches his release clause in order to lure him to United.

Pep Guardiola considered the possibility of signing Roberto last summer and was close to placing a 35-million-euro bid for his former player.

The 25-year-old midfielder's future at Barcelona has come under the scanner in recent weeks and rumours of his departure have been in overdrive since the Catalan giants confirmed the signing of Paulinho. At the weekend, he featured for just 22 minutes against the Los Blancos in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup.
