Sergio Busquets seriously considered the possibility of leaving Barcelona in January, according to Marca.
The captain put it to the Catalan club, but there was no option for him to find a new club. For Xavi, Busquets’ presence in the team at the moment is unquestionable.
The pivot position is the only one that the coach does not have a substitute for in the squad. He only has Busquets, although he can look for solutions such as Frenkie de Jong, who has already played in that position.
Franck Kessié can also play in that position, however, Busquets is still Xavi’s number one choice for the role, so he did not want to hear about the possibility of him leaving the club in the next window.
Busquets will likely leave the Blaugrana at the end of the season, with the idea of playing for a couple of years in another league. The MLS could be his next destination.
