Barcelona players are a tidbit for the Saudi market and some of them are even available for free, but we won't be seeing one of them in the Middle East.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Blaugrana captain Sergi Roberto has turned down a move to Saudi Arabia, with the reason being far from sporting.

Roberto's wife Coral Simanovic, although she is an American model, but is of Israeli origin, which in light of the conflict in the Gaza Strip, which began in October last year can not guarantee the safety of the defender's family in Saudi Arabia.

As we reported earlier, it is quite likely that Roberto's contract, which is valid until the summer of 2024, will not be extended, as the main lobbyist of the player in Barcelona Xavi will leave the team at the end of the season.
