Sergio Busquets won’t be a Barcelona player anymore after this season.

Sergio Busquets, one of Barcelona’s most iconic and influential players, has announced his departure from the club as a free agent on June 30, 2023. This season will mark Busquets’ final campaign in a Barcelona shirt, bringing an end to an era of exceptional midfield dominance at Camp Nou.

Rising through the ranks, he quickly displayed his exceptional footballing abilities and was eventually promoted to the first team in 2008 under the guidance of manager (then) Pep Guardiola.

He has helped the club secure 8 La Liga titles, 6 Copa del Rey trophies, and lifted the prestigious UEFA Champions League trophy on four occasions. In addition, he has been a part of the Spanish national team’s triumphs in the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the UEFA European Championship in 2012.
