Barcelona’s Captain Set to Depart in the Summer Following Xavi Hernandez’s Exit.

Introduction to the article:
The article discusses Barcelona’s plans to restructure their squad and the impact of Xavi Hernandez’s departure on the future of Captain Sergi Roberto’s contract.

Xavi’s Departure and Sergi Roberto’s Contract Extension

Barcelona is facing a period of transition as they aim to restructure their squad within their budget. Xavi Hernandez’s departure has already influenced the plans for one of their senior players, Sergi Roberto. Despite extending his contract at reduced rates in the past, it is reported that he will not be offered a new deal this time around following Xavi’s exit.

Impact of Xavi’s Departure

Xavi Hernandez, who played with Roberto and praised him as an exemplary professional, has always supported his contract extensions. With Xavi’s influence diminishing, it seems that Roberto’s future at the club is uncertain. His versatility and positive attitude have been overshadowed by injury issues in recent seasons, leading to speculation about his potential exit.

Future Prospects for Sergi Roberto

As Roberto nears the age of 31, his future at Barcelona remains uncertain. If he leaves the club, it is likely that the captaincy will pass to Marc-Andre ter Stegen. While Roberto has expressed potential interest in another year in European football, his long-term goal is to move to Major League Soccer. These comments hint at his desire for a new challenge outside of Europe.
