The Arsenal transfer rumours that have begun to link us with a possible summer transfer move for the Barcelona and Spain star Sergio Busquets are not going away. In fact this shock signing looks like it might actually happen if the truth about the reasons behind it are true.
I am not shocked that Arsene Wenger would want to bring this brilliant all round midfielder to the Premier League but I did think that Busquets was just about untouchable at the Catalan club. They certainly do not want to lose him and after they won the Champions League, La Liga and Copa Del Rey treble last season, you would assume that the player is happy where he is.
But according to the Spanish media, as reported by Metro, Busquets is looking for an upgrade on his current contract and so if Arsenal are willing to make him one of the top earners at the club on something like £140,000 a week, we have a good chance. Or is this simply a ruse by Busquets to get a better deal from Barcelona?
