Manchester City are weighing up move for Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets, according to Catalan daily Sport.
The Citizens have signed Javi Garcia and Jack Rodwell in the summer transfer window, but Roberto Mancini is eager to add another central midfielder to the ranks in January.
A move for Roma star Daniele De Rossi has been touted, but Sport now claims the Premier League champions could turn their attention towards Sergio Busquets.
City have been following the highly rated midfielder since the 2010/2011 season and they are finally ready to materialize their interest.
With Busquets considered a key member of the squad at Camp Nou, the English club will have to delve deep into their pockets in order to sign the Spain international.
The 24-year-old midfielder, who is occasionally used as a centre-back has spent his entire career at Camp Nou, making 123 La Liga appearances for the Catalans and scoring 3 goals.
