Barcelona is my club - Sergi Roberto rejects other interest to sign new deal*

Sergi Roberto insists he never had any intention of leaving Barcelona after officially signing a new contract with the LaLiga leaders.

The 26-year-old – who started out his career playing in midfield but more recently has been converted into a right-back – revealed he had dismissed interest from other clubs to pledge his future to Barca until 2022.

A regular under head coach Ernesto Valverde this season, Roberto has helped his boyhood club establish a seven-point lead over nearest rivals Atletico Madrid at the top of the table.

“Since I started talking about the renewal, I wanted to be here. It’s my club,” he said at a press conference at Camp Nou.

“It’s true that other teams were interested, but I wanted to be here and I’m happy to have renewed until 2022. And, if I can go on for longer, even better.”
