World Cup winning Barcelona star eyed by incoming Man City chief

Sergio Busquets is the latest big name Barcelona star to be linked to Manchester City as Pep Guardiola’s arrival looms, report the Daily Mail.

While superstar forward Neymar continues to be linked with a crazily expensive move to the Etihad, Busquets has now reportedly emerged as a key target.

The World Cup winning midfielder was instrumental in the philosophy created by Guardiola during their hugely successful stint with the Catalan giants.

In the holding midfield role, the 27-year old was the start of the passing masterclass that saw the Blaugrana win two Champions Leagues.

The report claims the La Masia graduate views the incoming City coach as a ‘footballing father’ and a move is ‘possible’.

Lionel Messi, widely regarded to be the best player in the world, is understood to have been deemed an unrealistic target, due to the strained relationship he endured with Guardiola towards the end.

The Bayern Munich manager will succeed Manuel Pellegrini at the Etihad Stadium in July.
