Despite being convinced by former teammates, Xavi Hernandez and Barca head coach, Busquets wants to try a different challenge.

“Hello Culers. The time has come to announce this will be my last season at Barcelona.

“It has been an unforgettable journey. Since I was a child coming to the matches or watching them on TV. I always dreamed of playing with this shirt in this stadium.

“And reality has exceeded my dreams. I wouldn’t have believed you if you’d told me when I arrived as a youth player that I would play 15 seasons at the best club in the world. The club of my life, of which I have been, am, and always be a fan, member, player, captain. And surpass 700 matches,” said Busquets.

Busquets said it has been an honour, a dream and a source of pride to represent Barcelona for almost 20 years.
