Barcelona legend, Sergio Busquets has dismissed claims that his decision to leave the Catalan club this summer was because of Lionel Messi.
Busquets said his decision to leave Barcelona is, contrary to speculations, not tied to Messi’s future, adding that he has received many offers from different clubs.
After the jubilation after winning the La Liga title this season, Busquets encountered a flurry of media questions.
The spotlight turned directly on Busquets as he was inevitably asked if he might reverse his decision to leave Barcelona and remain in Camp Nou for one more season.
After the Spaniard noted that he would not change his mind, he was probed about his next club, to which the Barcelona legend responded (via Barca Universal): “I have not signed anything yet.
“There is interest from several clubs, but I won’t make a decision until the end of the season, now it is time to enjoy!”
He added, “My future linked to Messi’s? Everyone wants to play with Leo, he is the best in the world. But my future is not linked to Leo’s future.”
