A number of Manchester City fans are livid after the club were heavily linked with a move for Barcelona defender Sergi Roberto.
The Citizens have now ended what was a mixed campaign. Of course, they had two trophies to celebrate in the Premier League and the Carabao Cup, but the tournament they wanted to win most of all, the Champions League, slipped from their grasp as they lost 1-0 to Chelsea in the final in Porto on Saturday.
Preparations for the next season have already seen Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia depart City for Barcelona, and it now appears that Pep Guardiola wants a player to go in the other direction. As per Sport [via Sport Witness], City have made contact with 29-year-old Roberto, who Guardiola’s admires due to his professionalism.

However, as the news was shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, it became clear that numerous City supporters don’t share the manager’s view on a right-back who endured an injury-plagued 2020/21 campaign in which he was limited to 15 appearances.
They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts, with some still fuming at Guardiola following Saturday’s Champions League anguish.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about the Sergi Roberto links
“We are finished”
“Pep Guardiola wants to slowly bring this club death”
“What rubbish is this”
“no way, how bad he is”
“Stop this. Stop this now”
