Man City have ‘shown interest’ in signing Barcelona star



Manchester City have “shown interest” in signing Barcelona defender Sergi Roberto, according to reports in Spain.

The versatile Spaniard is out of contract next summer and may leave the club as a free agent.

And reports in Spain suggest Roberto will not sign a new deal with the Catalan club.

According to Fichajes (Going through Sports witness), Man City and Arsenal are the only teams to have expressed interest in signing the Barcelona man.

Roberto is used to working under City boss Pep Guardiola, so he would likely adapt well to Premier League football if he moved to Manchester.

The 29-year-old went through Barca’s youth academy and joined the club at the age of 13.

He has played more than 300 times for the Catalan giants, scoring 12 goals and helping 37 others.

Roberto won two Champions Leagues, six La Ligas, six Spanish Cups and five Super Cups during his time at Camp Nou.

Elsewhere, former Watford boss Xisco Munoz has become the manager of the Spanish team Huesca.

Munoz left Watford earlier this month just seven games into the new Premier League season.

He was quickly replaced by former Leicester and Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri.

Huesca announced the departure of Nacho Ambriz on Tuesday and was quick to strike a deal with their new man until the end of the current campaign.

“Xisco Munoz is the new coach of Sociedad Deportiva Huesca,” the club confirmed on its website.

“The blue and red club and the Mallorcan coach have reached an agreement until the end of the season to lead Huesca in the LaLiga SmartBank.

“He will start the job immediately and will do it with his coaching team made up of Antonio Calle, assistant coach, Julian Jimenez, physical trainer, and Miguel Angel Munoz, analyst.”
