Sergio Busquets might be headed out of the exit door as Premier League trio looks to take advantage of the dressing room unrest at Barcelona.
Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal are reportedly plotting a move for Spanish international Sergio Busquets as stories of unrest in the Barcelona dressing room make rounds.
Reports indicate that the 26-year old midfielder is ready to leave Barcelona in search of a new challenge with the growing discontent in the Barcelona camp, with Luis Enrique’s management being the suggested reason.
Luis Enrique’s treatment of established players such as Gerard Pique and his incomprehensible decision making is said to be creating unrest amongst the senior Barcelona players. Enrique has used different line-ups in 24 successive games and just doesn’t seem to bring out the best from his players.
Busquets might not be happy with the way things are being handled at Barcelona right now and an unhappy player, especially of Busquet’s calibre, is sure to attract interest.
Arsenal are in the market for a defensive midfielder and have been linked to various players suited for the position. If Arsenal are able to steal Busquets away from Barcelona and reunite him with former teammate Alexis Sanchez, they will finally have a controlling force in the midfield, one of the many things they are currently lacking. Busquet’s presence will certainly add more strength to the Arsenal midfield.
Jose Mourinho might use Cesc Fabregas to convince Sergio Busquets to join his former midfield partner at the Stamford Bridge. Having already managed a transfer coup by signing Fabregas, Mourinho would be more than eager to bring on Busquets to partner Cesc. Alongside Fabregas, Busquets will be perfect in the position providing dominating physical presence and distribution.
Another club reportedly interested in bringing Busquets to the Premier League are Louis Van Gaal’s Manchester United. The Red Devils are not short on cash and are bound to make additions to their squad in the transfer window. However, Busquets might not be the solution to their problems as Manchester United need a solid centre-back more than another midfielder.
Busquets is an immensely successful player having won nearly all the titles up for grabs with the Spanish international team and Barcelona. The player has received immense praise from a lot of experienced managers including Pep Guardiola, who introduced him to the Barcelona first team in 2008, Vicente Del Bosque, under whom Busquets won the World Cup 2010 with Spain and Johan Cruyff.
