Barcelona News: Neymar wants PSG to seal shock Sergio Busquets transfer


Neymar swapped Barcelona for PSG in a world-record £200million transfer deal back in August.

As the world’s most expensive player, the Brazil international is arguably the most influential figure in the club’s history.

And Spanish website Diario Gol report that Neymar is using his position at the club to encourage a bid for Barcelona ace Busquets.

The Spain international has been a first-team regular ever since making his debut back in 2008, when Pep Guardiola occupied the Nou Camp dugout.

He continues to start every week, having played in all 11 of the club’s games under Ernesto Valverde this season.

But Diario Gol say that, despite the player’s love of Barcelona, Busquets is wanted by Neymar in France.

It is said the forward feels that Busquet is the ticket to PSG finally winning the Champions League.

The Ligue 1 giants already possess a quality midfield, with Marco Verratti and Adrien Rabiot thriving.

But Neymar reckons Busquets would make PSG’s play even slicker.

The midfielder’s contract at Barcelona expires in 2021, with the club having the option to extend it by a further two years.

He supposedly wants to be a one-club man and end his career in Catalonia.

However, if Neymar gets his way, then a sensational transfer could be on the cards.

Meanwhile, Barcelona legend Xavi says Busquets made him a better player during his time at the club.

“Those watching from afar may not appreciate or see everything Busi does on the pitch, but those who play with him know he is unique,” he said.

“He improves everything around him, he made me a better footballer, why? That is very simple, having him close by ensured I would receive the ball between the lines.

“When the coach announced the team before a match, the first thing I always did was look for Busi, even if I wasn’t starting if he was there I was calm, because I knew he guaranteed tactical intelligence.

“Busquets sees things in his head before they happen on the pitch, he intercepts an enormous amount of passes, he can allow his team to play without fear and he is agile on his feet.

“In the dressing room he is also a leader, a fantastic personality who knows when to joke and when to be serious, Busi is an extraordinary professional.”
