The never-ending saga of Sergi Roberto’s proposed contract extension at Barcelona has taken another turn – with suggestions that talks have once again broken down.

Roberto was transfer listed in the summer but was later offered an extension which looked to be all but done, only for reports to emerge suggesting talks had stalled and the Spaniard was once again heading for the exit.

That news was dismissed by Roberto, who insisted he was ‘optimistic’ that a full agreement would be imminently reached, but it appears things have hit the rocks after all.

This time, it’s Alfredo Martinez (via Albert Roge) bringing the bad news on Roberto’s negotiations. It’s said that talks have broken down completely and the 29-year-old is now facing the prospect of leaving the club when his contract expires next summer.

Perhaps coincidentally, this news comes after reports from Spain linked Barcelona with a move for Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta. The 32-year-old is also out of contract at the end of the season and, as it stands, would be available as a like-for-like replacement.
