Sergio Busquets: Midfielder handed Barcelona debut by Guardiola

Former Manchester City midfielder Dietmar Hamman insists Sergio Busquets would be a perfect signing for the club next season.

Busquets has been linked with a move to City after admitting he would be “honoured” to play again under former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola, who is taking over at the Etihad next term.

And Hamann, who made 54 appearances for City over three years, says the Spaniard is exactly the type of midfielder the club need.

“Luis Enrique came out saying that he is the best midfielder around. I’m not sure I would go that far but in that holding role, as a hugely underrated and undervalued player he has done fantastic things,” he told talkSPORT.

“I wasn’t too sure a few years ago when he came into the team. But what he has done for Spain, what he has done for Barcelona, he has been fantastic and I think he would improve that City team no end.

“They have got so much attacking power, they need someone to sit in front of that back four and he would be a perfect fit.”

Busquets, 27, has won every major honour possible for Barcelona and Spain, including three Champions League titles, a World Cup and, a European Championships.
