Sergio Busquets is open to the idea of reuniting with his former boss, Pep Guardiola. According to The Independent, Manchester City has made an inquiry about the Spaniard, and it is possible the transfer might happen in summer.
Guardiola is taking over from Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City after season’s end and it is speculated that Guardiola might be approaching few of his former players to join him for his next challenge.
Manchester City made contact with the 27-year-old over a possibility of a move to the club. ‘I have always said there are just two persons who could make me change my decision to stay at Barcelona,’ Busquets told ESPN.
‘One of those two persons 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.’
That said, Busquets added that his heart is at Barcelona and he thinks Pep wouldn’t ask him to come to City.
‘But he knows that Barcelona are my club and it’s his club as well. 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 [for Manchester].
Sergio Busquets is a long-term target of Louis van Gaal who will probably have to swallow another loss in the transfer market. Roman Abramovich is chasing the star for a couple of years now too.
