Busquets open to MLS in future

Speaking to Sports Illustrated, Barcelona’s Sergio Busquets has revealed that he would be open to a move to the MLS at some point in the future.

The midfielder will turn 31 this July and has so far been a one-club man, spending his entire career up to this point at Nou Camp. He made his first-team debut in 2008/09 and instantly became an instrumental part of the brilliant team designed by the current Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola. His trophy collection is truly remarkable: seven La Liga titles, six Copa del Rey trophies and three Champions League winner’s medals. He has also been capped 102 times for Spain, winning the 2010 World Cup and the 2012 European Championship with his national team.

“Obviously you can’t predict the future but I’m a fan of the USA and football is growing there,” he said.

Busquets named the difference in the style and format of football in the MLS to the one he’s used to as the most attractive prospect when it comes to a potential move to America at some point.

Barcelona have secured the services of Frenkie de Jong who will join them this summer from Ajax, and the 21-year-old Dutch midfielder is seen as a long-term replacement for Busquets.
