Sergio Busquets Burgos (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈserxjo βusˈkets], Catalan: [βusˈkɛts]; born 16 July 1988) is a Spanish footballer who plays for FC Barcelona and the Spanish national team, as a defensive midfielder.

He was a relatively obscure player when he arrived in FC Barcelona's first team in July 2008, but eventually made a name for himself in a relatively short period of time, reaching the Spanish national team in less than one year after making his professional club debuts.


Busquets' father, Carles, was also a footballer, having played as goalkeeper for Barcelona for several years during the 1990s, although almost exclusively as a backup.

Busquets rewarded with new contract

Barcelona anchorman Sergio Busquets is on the verge of signing a contract extension that will keep him at the Nou Camp till 2015.

Nou Camp officials are thrilled with the development and progress of the midfielder, who has become a mainstay of Pep Guardiola's Barca outfit and also for the Spain national team.

Having become a permanent fixture in the Barca side since 2008, his tenacious displays in the middle of the park have prompted interest from the likes of Chelsea, but Barca have moved in quickly to tie Busquets to the Catalan giants for the long term future,

According to El Mundo Deportivo, Busquets has no plans to leave Barca and despite having about two and half years of his existing contract left, the club are keen to reward his rapid rise with a bumper new deal till 2015.

Though his new contract details have not yet been sorted out, an official agreement is thought to be close with Busquets' new deal matching that of new arrival Javier Mascherano.
