Chelsea desperate to get Spanish midfielder

Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets could be on his way to Stamford Bridge in the near future as Roman Abramovich’s millions come in handy once again. 

Chelsea are prepared to go the extra mile in order to sign Barca midfielder Sergio Busquets with the Blues set to offer the player a hefty pay rise.

Busquets’ current contract at Barcelona doesn’t suit the player of his qualities and the Catalans are ready to offer the player a new deal, although they face a stiff competition from Chelsea, who look keen on the Spain international.
Carlo Ancelotti wants to rejuvenate his pretty old squad and he should look no further than Busquets, as the Spaniard has got the quality to immediately step into the side, while he can also be regarded as one for the future.
The player’s representatives are aware of Chelsea interest, but Busquets himself is eager to remain at Camp Nou, where he has already established himself as one of the key players in Pep Guardiola’s side.
Nonetheless, with Guardiola’s future at Camp Nou still in the balance, the midfielder may change his mind about staying should his mentor leave the club.

Busquets was an influential figure in the Spanish side that won the World Cup in South Africa, assuming the role vacated by Marcos Senna after Euro 2008. The Barca youth player, who plays as a defensive midfielder, has established himself as a key figure in a Barca side featuring world class players such as Xavi, Iniesta and Lionel Messi.
The twenty-two-year-old has played sixty-four times for the Catalan giants and, while he has only scored two goals in his Barcelona first team career, it is thought that Busquets could add some more steel to Chelsea’s midfield.
As well as playing twenty-three times for Spain, Busquets has also played twice for Catalonia, as the latter team is not affiliated to either FIFA or UEFA and is therefore not allowed to participate in either the FIFA World Cup or the European Championship.
Busquets has won countless honours with his club, including the Champions League, the Super Cup and twice winning La Liga.
