Our punters here at the Transfer Tavern are beginning to wonder whether certain FC Barcelona players have had a little bit too much Estrella. This comes after the Stoke Sentinel reported that young midfielder Sergei Roberto could be following in the footsteps of Bojan Krkic and Marc Muniesa, by swapping sunny Spain for… not so sunny Stoke!
After missing out on Yevhen Konoplyanka to Sevilla, it appears that Mark Hughes and co are not letting their ambitions drop, as they continue to be linked with a host of names such as Roberto but also Xhedran Shaqiri of Inter Milan.
Should they be able to pull off such signings, it would be difficult for our punters here at the Transfer Tavern to not have a cheeky flutter on the Potters making a breakthrough into the top six. Certainly, if they continue to recruit players from the ranks of Barcelona, and indeed with the right development, who knows what Stoke could achieve in the future?
Stoke Fans, Would Roberto be a good signing for the club? Who else can the Potters gain this summer?
