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

It's easy to see why managers Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte would be interested in Sergi Roberto as he is a very versatile player who is comfortable playing in defence or at the heart of the midfield.

United may also face competition from Chelsea for Roberto, as Antonio Conte tries to add depth to his Premier League winning team.

Manchester United have stolen a march on Chelsea after submitting a £36m (€40m) offer for Barcelona star Sergi Roberto, according to a report in the Mirror.

Oxford University employee hands himself in following brutal stabbing murder
They have been accused of fatally stabbing Trenton Cornell-Duranleau, 26, in Lathem's apartment in Chicago on July 27. Police have not said why the suspects were in California and have not released details on what led up to the murder.

Throughout the summer, Man United and Chelsea appear to have been at loggerheads.

United is not alone in showing interest in the Spaniard, as fellow Premier League side Chelsea has inquired about Sergi Roberto, although the London-based club has not made a formal offer.

The former Atletico Bilbao boss is most likely to use new recruit Nelson Semedo in the full-back position, and even if Roberto is shifted to his favoured midfield position, he will have to fight with Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, and Andres Gomes for a place in the starting lineup.

Manchester United have reportedly considered making a move for Barcelona midfielder Sergi Roberto.

The Mundo Deportivo report suggests that Barca are unwilling to sell Roberto and have knocked back United's opening offer but the Express claim the defender has a £36m buyout clause which has now seemingly been met.

The Spain international's current contract at the Camp Nou runs out in 2019.
