Sergi Roberto definitely has a bright footballing future. He shows all the signs of becoming a great midfielder and that is to be expected.
He is ready right now to make an impact on a club and has the talent level to hang with his Barcelona teammates already. In the next few years, he could be a household name, but that will take work.
Though Roberto has all the qualities to become a great player, he will most likely never be a world-class midfielder.
His playing style and upbringing give him what he needs to be successful, but he isn’t the next Xavi or Iniesta. He may reach the level of an Ander Herrera, but that is likely as far as he will go in his career.
In truth, Sergi Roberto will probably not continue his career at Barcelona for much longer. He isn’t quite at the level to challenge the other midfielders and cannot wait around for his chance forever.
A move to a club like Manchester United would be wonderful for the young midfielder as long as the Red Devils do not expect him to fix every issue. If he does make the switch, he could light up the Premier League in the next few years, but he will not be a Mesut Ozil.
If Barcelona would accept the cheap price United are rumored to be offering, which they won't, it would be a simple decision to pull the trigger.
To put it simply, Roberto will have a very successful footballing career. He is capable of becoming a wonderful part of any club around the world, but he will never be the star.
