Since making his breakthrough into the Barcelona first-team during the 2008-09 season under Guardiola, Busquets has gone on to become one of the World’s best defensive midfielders.
Following Manchester City’s recent confirmation of Guardiola as the man to take over from current boss Manuel Pellegrini from next summer, Busquets admitted that he would love the chance to work together again but insists he says he is happy at Barcelona currently and does not believe that Guardiola would ever ask him to leave.
“I have always said there are just two people who could make me change my decision to stay at Barcelona. 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 honored to work with him again.”
“He knows that Barcelona are my club and it’s his club as well. 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.” The Barcelona man told ESPN.
The dependable Barcelona midfield maestro has a contract until 2019.
