Busquets would work with Pep again

?Sergio Busquets would be honoured to work with Pep Guardiola again and admits he would be tempted to leave Barcelona to join him at Manchester City.

A product of the Barcelona academy, Busquets has spent his entire career at the Nou Camp, making his first-team debut under Guardiola, and is contracted to the Catalan giants until 2019.

Manchester City have been linked with a move for the 27-year-old and with Guardiola set to take over at the Etihad Stadium in the summer, Busquets admits he is the only manager who could persuade him to leave Barcelona.

"I have always said there are just two people who could make me change my decision to stay at Barcelona," the Spain international told ESPN.

"One of those two people is my wife. The other person is Guardiola.

"It's clear that I owe Pep a lot and I would be honoured to work with him again."

While he would like to work with Guardiola again, Busquets has made it clear he does not want to leave Barcelona.

"He knows that Barcelona are my club and it's his club as well," Busquets said. "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."
