Oh look, Sergio Busquets pops up out of nowhere with an interview where he says exactly what it would take to get him to consider leaving Barcelona.

"I have always said there are just two people who could make me change my decision to stay at Barcelona. One of those two people is my wife. And she is happy here right now, so I don't think there will be any issues on a personal level. On a sporting level, that other person is Guardiola. It's clear that I owe Pep a lot and I would be honoured to work with him again ... He knows that Barcelona are my club and it's his club as well," he added. "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."

He'd consider leaving Barcelona if Pep Guardiola asked him to, but don't worry, Barca fans! He doesn't think Pep will ask him to. Why would Pep ask Busquets to come play for Manchester City? Welp.
