Chelsea have been linked with a move for Barcelona midfielder Sergi Roberto, who can also play as a right-back this summer with various reports claiming Chelsea are willing to meet his £36 million release clause.

Chelsea’s hopes of landing Roberto have been dealt a huge blow after Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde insisted Roberto would be an important player for Barcelona this season.

Valverde told Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo : “Of course, I am absolutely counting on him.

“In some games he will be a major player and in some games no, but he remains an important player.”
