It has come to light that Sergio Busquets is unhappy at Barcelona. Because of contract negotiations which have broken down, Busquets may look to leave the Nou Camp as soon as possible. And Man United could be the ones to benefit, signing a player of pedigree and weakening their close rivals in one fell swoop.
Busquets, apparently furious at an unfair pay scale at Barcelona, where recent addition Javier Mascherano is on a higher salary, could be on his way to Old Trafford as Fergie looks to add some steel to his midfield. The young World Cup winner could be a brilliant addition to Sir Alex’s squad as he aims to create a powerful midfield once again. With Owen Hargreaves’ career all but over and Michael Carrick’s indifferent form, Busquets could be the perfect tonic to boost United as they look to conquer the Premiership and Champions League.
£25 million is the price and Pep Guardiola may just be tempted by that. The money would give him more spending power as he chases Fabregas, a chase he has apparently won with the agreement of a 5 year deal with the Arsenal captain. And will he leave Arsenal? We know Cesc has a strong affilaition with the Catalan club and will wear the number 4 shirt if he arrives at the Nou Camp for next season. This one could make United THE powerhouses of English football, and who knows what it could do for Barca?
And what of Fabregas?
