Sergi Roberto has told Barcelona fans not to worry about discussions over a new contract after insisting he wants to stay at the Nou Camp for the rest of his career.

The 25-year-old has established himself as a key player for Barcelona in recent times due to his ability to play both in the middle of the park and at the right-back.

However, his future at the Nou Camp came in for question during the final days of the summer transfer window after reports in Spain claimed that Manchester United, Chelsea were interested in luring him to the Premier League.

Mundo Deportivo reported that Jose Mourinho had launched a €40m (£35.5m, $46.9m) offer which matched his release clause in an effort to lure him to United.

Sport later added Chelsea were also considering meeting his release clause with manager Antonio Conte keen to bolster his options at right-back and midfield.

Juventus were also linked with his services but the Reus-born player decided instead to remain at Barcelona after Ernesto Valverde made it clear that he had a big role to play in the new season.

Mundo Deportivo recently reported that the Catalans were ready to hand him a new contract with a new €400m release clause in order to ward off potential suitors.

There have since been suggestions that Roberto is not happy with the proposal made by the Catalans but the player has now made it clear that sooner rather than later both parties will reach an agreement.

"Barça is the club of my life and I want to stay here forever. So it is clear that nobody should suffer about my renewal. I am in the best club in the world and I was lucky to be promoted from the youth team to the first-team," Sergi Roberto confirmed as quoted by Sport after receiving the Catalan Footballer of the Year award.

"I never stopped working to help the first-team and now I am happy to be established. It has not been easy."

Meanwhile, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu is also very positive about the deal after confirming the negotiations with the player has already begun.

"I have no doubt that Sergi will continue with us. He is one of our most relatable players, like [Andres] Iniesta, who came through La Masia," Bartomeu said during the event.

"We have been negotiating for days and we will continue talking. It is admirable that there are players like him and, as a person, he is fundamental to our dressing room."
