According to this source Rafa has joined a long queue of interested parties chasing this Barcelona youngster who could be available for a bargain fee in January!
Liverpool have joined the rapidly growing list of clubs interested in signing Sergio Busquets, with Barca’s latest prodigy attracting unprecedented levels of interest…
Following on from the news that Arsenal and Juventus are seriously considering making an approach for Sergio Busquets, it has emerged that Liverpool are the latest club in awe of the midfielder.
The young midfielder has only played six league games at senior level, but already it appears as though all of Europe is after him. Off contract at the end of the season, clubs will soon be able to negotiate with Busquets, and it seems that money is no barrier. Liverpool and Milan are both reportedly ready to offer the youngster double what he is currently on, an enticing prospect for even the most loyal of players. (goal.com)
After an impressive season in the B team, 20 year old Busquets has broken into the first team at the Camp Nou will impressive maturity pushing Yaya Toure out of the starting lineup. Pepe Guardiola clearly sees the defensive midfielder as a hot prospect and the youngster’s performances have helped take the Catalan to the summit of La Liga. Out of contract at the end of the season it has been reported that if Sergio doesn’t sign a new contract soon then they will let him leave for a fee in the region of £4m in January rather than see him leave for nothing in the summer, which would then of course hamper Toure’s proposed move to Arsenal. Benitez has a raft of good young players either in the first team or on the fringes and a signing such as this one would further illustrate the determination of the Spanish boss to plan for the future as well as the present. Do Liverpool fans like the look of this Barca man?
