Chelsea transfers: Sergio Busquets wants Barcelona stay
Chelsea transfers: Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets says he wants to stay at the Catalan side
Sergio Busquets insists he wants to stay at Barcelona despite reported interest from Chelsea.
The Spain international recently penned a new deal which will keep the World Cup winner at Camp Nou until 2018.
I haven’t planned anything because I’m where I want to be
However, Chelsea continue to be linked with the 25-year-old defensive midfielder as Jose Mourinho looks to improve his Blues squad.
But Busquets, who is reportedly valued at £30m, wants to remain at the La Liga champions for the foreseeable future.
“I renewed my contract fairly recently, so I haven’t planned anything, because I’m where I want to be,” Busquets said.
Meanwhile, Barcelona manager Gerardo Martino backed Brazil international Neymar after the striker’s recent struggles in front of goal.
“You do not analyse a player just due to their goals, or just due to their work for the team, or just due to their assists,” Martino said.
“Neymar is a player who has all assets in his game, at the moment the ball might not be going in for him, but the goals will come. He is not a goalscorer like Leo, who is so easy in front of goal, but he can score goals for us — just like Alexis [Sanchez], Pedro [Rodriguez] and Cesc.”
