Sergio Busquets: French interest disrupts possible Prem move

Paris Saint-Germain are reported to be lining up a sensational €100million move for Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets.

According to Spanish outlet Marca, PSG are plotting a move for Busquets this summer.

Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have all been linked with the 27-year-old, who is currently holding out for a new contract with the Catalans despite his current deal running until 2019.

The contract talks appear to have hit a standstill, however, and the uncertainty over the Spain international’s future has led to clubs circling for a possible deal.

PSG have increased up their interest and are apparently willing to offer the Spain international a deal worth over €16million per year.

Representatives of the French club are rumoured to have already contacted the player’s agent José Maria Orotbig and they have urged him to make a decision regarding his client’s future soon.

Busquets has been with Barca since July 2008 and has made over 170 appearances for the Nou Camp outfit.

In February, Busquets put Manchester City on alert with his comments about former boss Pep Guardiola.

“I have always said there are just two people who could make me change my decision to stay at Barcelona,” he told ESPN. “One of those two people is my wife. And she is happy here right now, so I don’t think there will be any issues on a personal level.

“On a sporting level, that other person is Guardiola. It’s clear that I owe Pep a lot and I would be honoured to work with him again.”

“He knows that Barcelona are my club and it’s his club as well,” he added. “He knows it’s best for the club and for me to stay here and I don’t think he will ask me to leave Barcelona.

“I hope that when I end my career, I go down in history as a great team player, who won titles and excelled. I want to become one of the players with the most games for Barcelona.”
