Pep Guardiola could tempt me to leave Barcelona - Sergio Busquets

Barcelona star Sergio Busquets has told ESPN Deportes that he could be tempted to leave the club by incoming Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

Busquets, 27, made the breakthrough into the Barcelona first-team during the 2008-09 season under Guardiola and has gone on to become one of the best defensive midfielders in the world.

And, with Guardiola announced as City's new manager for next summer, Busquets admitted that he would love the chance to work together again.

"I have always said there are just two people who could make me change my decision to stay at Barcelona," he told ESPN. "One of those two people is my wife. And she is happy here right now, so I don't think there will be any issues on a personal level.

"On a sporting level, that other person is Guardiola. It's clear that I owe Pep a lot and I would be honoured to work with him again."

The Spain midfielder has a contract until 2019, although he says he is happy at Barcelona currently and does not believe that Guardiola would ever ask him to leave.

"He knows that Barcelona are my club and it's his club as well," he added. "He knows it's best for the club and for me to stay here and I don't think he will ask me to leave Barcelona.

"I hope that when I end my career, I go down in history as a great team player, who won titles and excelled. I want to become one of the players with the most games for Barcelona."

Sergio Busquets is one of many La Masia graduates to have earned a Barcelona senior team debut under former manager Pep Guardiola.
Sergio Busquets says he would like to play for Pep Guardiola again.

Barcelona manager Luis Enrique was asked later on Tuesday if he felt that Guardiola joining City meant some current Barca stars could rejoin their former boss in England.

"I don't see Guardiola at City as a menace for our players," Luis Enrique said. "It is a question for Guardiola and Busquets, not for Luis Enrique.

"Busquets was rested against Levante. He was one of the players who has played the most minutes this season and that shows how important he is for us. He is a top player.

"I won't hail him anymore because we already know his importance to the team."
