OFFICIAL: Sergi Roberto Extends His Contract With FC Barcelona

Barcelona and Sergi Roberto have agreed to extend Sergi Roberto's contract until June 30, 2023. 

The buyout clause for the player will be set at 400 million euros. This announcement was made on this afternoon by FC Barcelona official website

The long-serving 30-year-old’s previous deal was set to expire at the end of June and he had been linked with Atletico Madrid and LA Galaxy.

Roberto, like the other first-team captains, came up via La Masia's youth squads before making the first team debut at the Santiago Bernabéu in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final in 2011 when he was just 19 years old.

As a member of the first team for the past nine seasons, he has become an integral part of the club.

Following the departure of Javier Mascherano, he has been one of the four first team captains since 2018.

The player from Reus, in the south of Catalonia, was at the center of one of the most remarkable events in recent Barça history, scoring the game-winning goal in a 6-1 Champions League comeback victory over PSG.

He has so far scored 12 goals and contributed 37 assists in 316 official appearances, and will be eager to add to that tally in Xavi’s first full season in charge.
