Chelsea Send Top Scout To Watch Spanish Midfielder
European Champions Chelsea are interested in signing Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets but will have to wait until the summer to have a chance of landing him
Despite the transfer window being closed, there is always transfer gossip doing the rounds in the papers and we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest news during the coming months. Today, Chelsea are linked with Sergio Busquets.
Chelsea are interested in signing Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets but will have to wait until the summer to have a chance of landing him, according to the Mirror.
The report claims that the Blues sent top scout Scott McLachlan to watch the Spanish midfielder in action at the Nou Camp last week and Chelsea are said to be ‘desperate’ to land the 24-year-old.
However, the Mirror claim that while Barcelona wont consider selling Busquets in January the La Liga giants may be willing to do business in the summer should the player indicate he wants a move and an offer of around £30m come in.

It’s difficult to believe why Busquets would want out of the Nou Camp at this point. He’s a first team regular, starting 13 of their 15 league games so far this season, is playing alongside his international colleagues and lets face it, he’s playing in one of the finest teams in living memory. So I wouldn’t be getting too excited about this piece of transfer gossip Chelsea fans, but you never know, stranger things have happened in the world of football!
