Ed Sheeran released his third album Divide on Friday, March 3, and within hours it had won over Barcelona midfielder Sergi Roberto.

The album, which features singles Castle on the Hill and Shape of You, follows earlier number one records Plus and Multiply, and is expected to top the charts in many countries.

Why Barcelona should appoint Sampaoli

Divide is available in a deluxe edition format which includes a bonus track called Barcelona - causing Roberto to share a screenshot of his music app playing the song in question.

The Sheeran bonus track does not feature mention of the Camp Nou club, but is focused on the city itself, including the lyrics "Come on, let's be free in Barcelona / Las Ramblas, I'll meet you /  Come on and dance with me in Barcelona."

Roberto has been a regular part of Luis Enrique's squad this season, starting 17 La Liga games for Barcelona and coming off the bench in four more matches.

Barcelona currently lead the table by a single point from Real Madrid, but have played one more game than their title rivals.
