Barcelona and Spain midfielder Sergio Busquets could be tempted to leave Catalonia by incoming Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, reports ESPN.

The 27-year-old was a key part of Guardiola's Barcelona side that dominated European football in the late 2000's, winning three La Liga titles, two Copa del Rey's, two Champions League's and seven other honours.

Now, when quizzed on the possibility of leaving the Camp Nou and linking up with his former manager, Busquets claimed Guardiola was one of only two people who could convince him to part ways with his beloved boyhood club.

"I have always said there are just two people who could make me change my decision to stay at Barcelona," he said.

"One of those two people is my wife. And she is happy right here right now, so I don't think there will be any issues on a personal level.

"On a professional level, the other person is Guardiola. It's clear that I owe Pep a lot and I would be honoured to work with him again."

The 45-year-old Guardiola has been linked with a host of former players since his arrival at the Etihad was confirmed, including Lionel Messi and Neymar.

Such speculation surrounding a potential swoop for one of his former players has also been fuelled by rumours that Barcelona can't afford to offer their superstars new contracts, with Messi set to earn approximately £600,000-per-week as of next season.

Were any of Barca's stars to up sticks, it seems Guardiola's cash-strapped City will be the most likely destination.
