Chelsea preparing move for World Cup winning midfielder

busquetsChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are gathering by the bar and hoping for massive improvements in the coming months, which includes their aspirations of signing big-name players in the summer.

The hopes of those fans have certainly received a boost with today’s news, as Mundo Deportivo state Chelsea are eying a move for Barcelona’s highly-rated midfielder Sergio Busquets this summer.

Busquets, a World Cup winner with Spain, is a crucial part of the Catalan side that won the treble last season and the 27-year-old has previously stated he’d like to spend his entire career at the Nou Camp.

However, with Barcelona eying midfield recruits this summer, Busquets may find his hand forced and a move to the Premier League is a genuine possibility.

Manchester City, not Chelsea, would be the favourites for his signature though due to the appointment of Pep Guardiola, who will arrive at the end of the season to lead Manchester City into a new era.

Whilst Chelsea would fancy their chances of beating the Citizens to the Spanish international, our landlord is certain Busquets would demand Champions League football- which would leave Chelsea out of the running.

Chelsea fans, would Busquets be an upgrade to your midfield? Let us know in the comments below!
