It’s always going to be the case that a new manager will shake things up and some players will need to go, but Sergio Busquets always looked like a player who would be safe at Barca.
He’s often underrated because his job isn’t exciting, but he’s perfect in that holding role where he keeps things ticking over and shields the back four.
His future actually appears to be in serious doubt, as Ronald Koeman has signalled that he plans to use Frenkie de Jong in that role instead:

The problem for Busquets is he’s not suited to playing higher up the pitch and he’s probably too slow to transition into a centre back either, so he may have to move on if he wants to play regular football.
