Report Man United and Chelsea go head-to-head for Barcelona first-teamer with £36m release clause

Manchester United are reportedly willing to trigger the rumoured £36m release clause in Sergi Roberto's Barcelona contract this summer.

Sergi Roberto has been deployed as a right full-back for last two seasons with the Barcelona squad possessing excellent midfield talent such as Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic.

His finest moment in a Barca shirt came when he scored the winning goal against PSG in last season's fantastic Champions League comeback win, netting with the final kick of the game as Barcelona won 6-1 to go through 6-5 on aggregate in the last 16.

The potential for the Spaniard to become surplus to requirements has not only alerted United to his potential availability before the window closes, but Chelsea are also interested.

Sergi Roberto is under contract with Barca until 2019 and the azulgrana are prioritizing a contract extension for the 25-year-old as manager Ernesto Valverde will most likely place him back at center midfield starting this season.

Sergi Roberto surprisingly arrived into the first-team setup as a right-back and established himself, despite being a natural midfielder.

United are said to be rivaling Chelsea for the Spaniard's signature as they look to add the finishing touches to their squad ahead of the start of the new Premier League season.

Sergi Roberto has already strongly been linked with Manchester City this summer, with the Catalan press pushing the story more than anyone.

And Mundo Deportivo have now reported that United have seen a bid of £36million knocked back.
