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.
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.
