Sergio Busquets is one of the longest-serving players in the FC Barcelona squad today and is an essential piece in Xavi’s squad. However, his future is far from certain, and the player will have to make a decision on his future in the coming weeks.

Busquets is the only player remaining in the club from the legendary Pep Guardiola squad. The player made his debut in 2008, and since then, has gone on to remain an integral part of the various FC Barcelona teams assembled over the years.

Every FC Barcelona coach from Pep Guardiola to Xavi has set up his midfield around Sergio Busquets, and his skills and abilities have played a great part in winning the silverware the club has won in these years. However, as Busquets has advanced in years, his athletic skills and abilities have also gone downhill.

Although his passing and reading of the game remain top-notch, his pace and strength have declined, which results in the team facing some difficulties when facing highly aggressive teams. As a result, the club has been contemplating his departure from the club for some time.

However, Xavi believes the player can still contribute, and is advocating his continued stay at the club. Other clubs from around the world have also been attentive to Busquets’ situation, as he remains a highly gifted midfielder even today.

Previously, the United States was being reported as an attractive destination for the Spaniard, but according to Diario AS, Busquets is not contemplating a move to the States now. He is considering only two options, either to remain at Barcelona or join a club in Saudi Arabia.

Joining a Saudi side will mean he no longer plays for a top team but will return a huge paycheck. On the other hand, staying at FC Barcelona will afford him an opportunity to reunite with his friend and former teammate, Lionel Messi, and live through another memorable period at the club.
