Sergio Busquets has changed his mind and is now seeking a contract extension with FC Barcelona. After speaking with his coach, Xavi Hernandez, the situation changed overnight.
Sergio Busquets considers to stay at Barcelona
Xavi Hernandez has publicly and privately stated that Sergio Busquets is not only a key player for Barcelona now, but that he should be next season as well. It might have borne fruit for him.
According to MD, the Barcelona captain had already decided that 2023 would be the end of his 15-year career with the Blaugrana.
This was a true defining moment. Everything seemed to point to a future in Major League Soccer (MLS) in the United States. However, Sergio Busquets has changed his mind.
According to ‘Mundo Deportivo,’ the 34-year-old midfielder is considering renewing his contract with FC Barcelona and staying at the club for at least another year.
His current contract will expire in mid-2023. However, no decision has yet been made. However, the possible extension of his friend Lionel Messi’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain could result in Busquets remaining at Barcelona.
Busquets, on the other hand, has changed his mind and is now seriously considering staying at the club to sign a new contract. Xavi recently met with Busquets, and his coach is gradually changing his mind.
Furthermore, Lionel Messi’s decision to stay at Paris Saint-Germain for another year may have an impact. The two remain good friends and had planned to meet again at Inter Miami, their presumed final destination, but Busquets may be less eager to do so without the Argentine.
Busquets has been heavily criticized in recent seasons, but one thing is clear: Barcelona cannot afford a major replacement. Bringing a quality alternative to an institution like Busquets is difficult even in the best of circumstances, and given their financial difficulties, this would push the issue further down the road.
