Xavi provides an update on Sergio Busquets future

Will Sergio Busquets sign a new contract this January?

The La Masia midfielder made his debut for the first-team back in 2008.

Since then, he has won nine La Liga titles and three Champions League trophies and made over 690 appearances for the Catalan giants.

He was heavily linked to the MLS this summer window and some American clubs are interested in landing the veteran next summer on a free transfer.

Manager Xavi explains whether the 34-year-old midfielder will a contract extension with Barcelona.

“When we lose everyone gets criticised, Busquets is still an important player for us, he’s the captain and he always helps us, Busquets and all the captains, we have a great dressing room,” Xavi told reporters.

“Busquets’ contract expires, yes… but we are still in October. He will decide. I took it as the season progressed. I had a renewal offer but decided to leave.

“Busi doesn’t have a clear replacement, [Miralem] Pjanic and Nico [Gonzalez] wanted to leave… but now we have options like Frenkie [de Jong], [Franck] Kessie, or even the option to use a defender there. Busquets is still an important player for us.”
