The offer that Sergi Roberto rejected to stay at Barcelona

The future of FC Barcelona youth player Sergi Roberto is once again in the spotlight. The midfielder, whose contract with Barça expires on June 30, received a tempting offer from Al Qadsiah, led by the experienced Míchel, in Saudi Arabia’s Division 1.

The proposal from the Saudi team, currently leading its category under Míchel’s leadership, offered the possibility of direct promotion to the up-and-coming Saudi Pro League. However, according to close sources, Roberto would have rejected the offer, MundoDeportivo reports.

In addition to purely football considerations, the player would also have weighed up personal aspects when making his decision. It is rumored that the presence of his wife, a well-known American model of Israeli descent, was a deciding factor. Given the delicate political situation in the region, particularly related to the conflict between Israel and Palestine, Roberto would not have felt comfortable moving to a place where Arab support predominated.

Despite the uncertainty about his future at Barça and the possibility of an extension, Sergi Roberto has not yet made a final decision. The support of Xavi Hernández, a former teammate and current coach, suggests that the club could consider extending his contract, although no concrete steps have been taken in that direction so far.

However, there are other options on the table for the versatile midfielder. Interest has been expressed in trying his luck in Major League Soccer (MLS) in the United States, an idea Roberto has been happily considering for some time.
