Barcelona veteran Sergio Busquets will go down as one of the greatest holding midfielders of all time, nurtured in the highly respected establishment of La Masia. The holding midfielder joined the Catalans when was just a 17-year-old teenager.

Under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola, he made a name for himself and won innumerable titles, which include multiple La Liga titles and Champions League medals, solidifying his position as one of the best in the business.

However, despite still going strong, the veteran is in the final stages of his decorated career. At 34 years of age, his time at the elite European level is dwindling by the day. As young blood regains prominence in the first-team squad, Busquets has an important decision to make regarding his highly speculated continuity at the club of his dreams.

While presumptions are perpetually being made with regards to Busquets’ future, Javi Miguel od Diario AS claims that the future of Busquets will be concretized once Barcelona have won La Liga. With a win all that’s needed in their next game against Espanyol at the Cornella, his future could be made clear very soon.

Furthermore, the report argues that Busquets’ situation is not correlated to Messi’s potential arrival. Although the two are considered best mates having spent large portions of their careers together, the possibility of the Spaniard departing despite Leo’s arrival is strong.

Nobody at the club currently possesses knowledge of Busquets’ future and thus time will tell whether he hangs up his boots or gives next season one last shot.

However, going by the timing of his announcement, it can be deciphered that the holding midfielder is leaning towards an exit. Previous Barça legends such as Xavi and Iniesta have also delayed their departures and with the La Liga title wrapped up, the legendary defensive midfielder can leave on a good note.

The midfield maestro was a pivotal reason behind Barça’s possessional dominance in La Liga this season. His distribution was exceptional, but he also outstandingly anticipated passes and reached to intercept them with his ball-winning ability complementing Frenkie de Jong. If his exit materializes, Barça will be active in their pursuit of signing replacements.
