He is world champion, European champion, three-time Champions League winner and multiple Spanish champion…
Barcelona legend Sergio Busquets (34) has been playing for FC Barcelona since 2008. His contract expires next summer. Then he should leave the Catalans after more than 14 years. This is reported by the Spanish “Sport.”
The Spaniard has played 685 games in his time at Barça, scoring 18 goals and setting up 43 goals. He made his debut in 2008 against Racing Santander under Pep Guardiola (51).
Nobody has ever shown cards so emotionally
From that point on, he flashed his class in many games for the Catalans, wowing crowds and becoming an indispensable force. He is still a regular player in the current season and was allowed to play three full-time games under coach Xavi (42) in four league games.
Between 2008 and 2015, he was considered a magic triangle with today’s Barça coach and ex-teammate Andres Iniesta, both for the Catalans and the Spanish national team.
Even if media reports say Xavi would like to extend the contract with the midfield star, Busquets is said to be flirting with confusing the club with America.
According to “Sport”, Inter Miami wants to sign the international. Busquets is said to be excited about the idea of getting to know a new culture and league with Major League Soccer. His family should also be able to imagine living in Miami in the future.
Background: According to Sport, FC Barcelona wanted to extend the contract for two more seasons a year ago.
But Busquets is leaving himself open and deciding for himself whether to stay at Barcelona for the 2023/2024 season.
With the club reportedly refusing, the 2010 world champions (played 137 games for Spain) could head for America next year.
As a successor, Barça is said to have kept an eye on midfielder Martin Zubimendi (23/plays at Real Sociedad).
