Sergio Busquets contradicts rumors about Lionel Messi

Although FC Barcelona will play three more times in the competition, the club was already largely silent on Saturday evening at the departure of Sergio Busquets. Coach Xavi Hernández would have liked the midfielder to stay for another year, but he recently announced that he would leave Spain after this season. The media suggested that Busquets’ future plans depend in part on Lionel Messi, but that is not true, according to the player himself.

Busquets has regularly come under fire in recent seasons, but his trainers have continued to call on him. Also under Xavi, the veteran is an indispensable part of FC Barcelona’s starting eleven. The farewell of Busquets therefore hits the champion of Spain hard. FC Barcelona will have to look for a replacement.

However, the marriage between PSG and Messi has not become what the French had hoped for. Messi will leave Paris again after this season. FC Barcelona hopes to be able to bring him back after two years, but a few things have to be done before that. President Joan Laporta announced after the championship match at Espanyol that he will do everything he can to make Messi’s return possible.

Everyone has to make their own choices, has their own life, intentions, family. Of course I would like to play with Messi again, because he is the best player in the world,” Busquets said. Mundo Deportivo.

Busquets’ announced departure from FC Barcelona sparked rumors that Messi would not return to the club where he celebrated so many successes. According to those rumors, Busquets will play for the club where Messi signs next season. “He has nothing to do with my departure from Barcelona”, Busquets is clear. FC Barcelona supporters therefore seem to be allowed to dream of the return of Messi…
