Premier League pair chase exciting youngster.
Arsenal and Manchester United face frustration in their efforts to sign Barcelona starlet Sergi Roberto, according to the Daily Express.
The Catalan giants do not want to sell during their transfer ban as they won’t be able to bring in any replacements, despite strong interest from Premier League clubs in this talented squad player.
Hailed as the ‘new Xavi’, Roberto has not quite become a first-team regular at the Nou Camp, but has sparked interest from other top clubs in recent times.
Still, he won’t be sold until 2016, according to his agent, with the 22-year-old set to be kept as a squad player while the club cannot bring in anyone else.
