Chelsea ready to trigger Barcelona star’s release clause

Chelsea are considering a release clause-triggering £21.5m offer for Barcelona’s Sergi Roberto, according to reports from Metro.

The 23-year-old has enjoyed a solid start to the season at the Camp Nou, taking advantage of injuries to other players to become a regular under Luis Enrique – he’s netted one goal and bagged four assists.

This form is understood to have alerted Chelsea, who are reportedly eager to take advantage of the release clause in his current contract before Barca can alter the situation.

The La Liga champions are understood to be looking to commit Roberto to a fresh deal, but until they can a £21.5m valuation dangles, even though the club want much closer to £32m to even consider selling.

The central midfielder is known for his creative skills in the middle of the pitch, which could be a boost for the Blues with players such as Cesc Fabregas misfiring.
