Bayern Munich have entered into talks with Barcelona over a possible loan deal for Sergi Roberto that would potentially include an option to buy, sources have confirmed to Goal and SPOX.

The Bundesliga club, who are also in contact with the right-back's agent via an intermediary, are keen to sign a new right-sided full-back and have also considered Sergi Roberto's team-mates Sergino Dest or Emerson, albeit a move for either appears unlikely to happen.

Sergi Roberto's contract expires next summer and Barcelona do not want him to leave without a fee, with transfer discussions potentially boosted by a positive relationship between the clubs following the loan deal for Philippe Coutinho in 2019-20.
