Busquets ‘could leave Barca for Pep’

Sergio Busquets wants to stay at Barcelona but admits Pep Guardiola is one of only two people who could convince him to leave.

The midfielder revealed the identity of the pair in an interview with ESPN, reported by Sport, in which the subject of following the former Barca Coach to Manchester City was raised.

“I’ve always said there are only two people who can change my decision to stay,” he explained.

“One is my wife, and I’m here today and I’m with Barca.

“On a sporting level, the other would be Guardiola. It’s clear I owe him a lot and to work with him would be an honour.

“But he knows this is my club and his club and it’s best for me and for the club that I’m here and I don’t think I’ll ask to go with him.

“If it was only about money, I would have already left Barca.”
