One of the most versatile players in the world at the moment, FC Barcelona's Sergi Roberto has made a sensational revelation that Real Madrid, a team that his father supported, came calling for him before the Catalan giants entered the fray.
Speaking on the programme Al cotxe ahead of the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Manchester United, the Spanish international explained that Madrid, the team his father supported, were in touch first.
AS quote excerpts from his interview as he said, "I was playing at Nàstic de Tarragona in the youth ranks when Madrid asked for me. A few days later, Barça got in touch with Nàstic and my father. All my family are Barça fans, except my father, who supported Madrid, but now he has changed and is 100% Cule."

He then went on to speak about the United clash and stated, "We are doing very well and in the Champions League we just need to finish the tie off. The most important thing is reaching the end of the season winning titles."
Ending the interview on a brilliant note, Roberto was asked about what he felt when he scored that incredible last gasp goal against Paris Saint-Germain in Barcelona's unbelievable comeback.
Roberto replied as he concluded, "I do not remember much of what happened afterwards. All my teammates jumped on me, I remember being underneath and they were all on top of me. That day was crazy, I couldn't sleep."
