Barcelona ace Sergi Roberto is said to be considering his future at the Nou Camp.

The Premier League due are thought to be ready to trigger Roberto’s £36m release clause.

And Spanish paper Sport say he could decide he wants out at Barcelona this week.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan admits he is shocked Chelsea sold Nemanja Matic to United.

Sergi Roberto could decide to leave Barcelona

And Mkhitaryan has revealed he is surprised Chelsea sold him.

He said: “Actually I am (surprised).

“But at the same time I am very happy that we have got him.”

Antonio Conte forced through Matic’s move to Old Trafford.

That’s according to Jason Burt of the Telegraph.

He tweeted: “Spoke to a number of people today on Nemanja Matic and the fact is Conte didn’t want him and Man Utd offered the cash.”

In an article for the Telegraph, Burt goes on to explain that Conte thought the midfielder had lost some of his hunger and desire.

And in his 30th year, £40m was too good to turn down for a player whose best days were thought to be behind him.
