Sergio Busquets set for Barcelona farewell at the end of the season

Sergio Busquets set to leave Barcelona after 15 YEARS as the Blaugrana skipper ‘decides against renewing his contract in fear of tarnishing his legacy’…with a possible move to Saudi Arabia as his next destination

  • Sergio Busquets will not renew his contract and leave Barcelona this summer 
  • The club captain made his debut in 2008 and has played over 700 games 
  • Busquets could be tempted by moves to either Saudi Arabia or the MLS  

Sergio Busquets has decided not to renew his contract at Barcelona and will leave the Spanish side at the end of the season, according to reports. 

The 34-year-old is said to have informed the club of his decision, and it will bring to an end the association with the club he joined at seven and progressed through the youth ranks to eventually captain the first team. 

Spanish outlet Marca has claimed that Busquets was wary of staying at the club past his prime and tarnishing his legacy with a decline in his displays for the Catalans. 

Former teammate and current boss Xavi was keen for the midfielder to remain at the Nou Camp, but the club could also not present a credible deal to Busquets due to their current unstable finances. 

Busquets could now follow Cristiano Ronaldo to Saudi Arabia according to a report in SPORT, with the Middle East seen as a likely destination for his next move.

Xavi was keen to keep his former teammate at the Nou Camp but Barca couldn’t offer a deal 

Busquets has won 30 trophies in 15 seasons at Barcelona, including NINE LaLiga titles 

However, the MLS could be another option for the veteran midfielder, and has previously been linked with a move to David Beckham’s Inter Miami outfit. 

An official announcement is set to be made by Barcelona in the coming days, ahead of their title clinching clash with rivals Espanyol this weekend. 

There is then expected to be a farewell organised for the club captain, to celebrate his fifteen glorious seasons with his boyhood team. 

Busquets is not the only Barca legend whose future could see them move either to the MLS or the Saudi Pro League. 

Former team-mate Lionel Messi has also been linked with Inter Miami, as well as a stunning £522million deal at Al-Hilal, according to reports. 

The LaLiga win will be Busquets ninth league title since he made his first team bow for the club in 2008. 

In total he has won 30 trophies with the Catalan club, including three Champions League triumphs across his 744 appearances and 20 goals for Barcelona. 

Busquets also amassed 143 caps for Spain, and was part of both the World Cup winning squad of 2010 and the Euro 2012 victorious Spanish side.
