Sergio Busquets will be staying at FC Barcelona until June 30, 2018, with the option to one season more. At 13.30 today in the club offices, the player was joined by president Sandro Rosell, vice-president Josep Maria Bartomeu, director of football Andoni Zubizarreta, the player’s father and former FCB goalkeeper Carles Busquets and his agent Josep Maria Orobitg. Busquets’ buyout clause remains at 150 million euros.

25-year-old Sergio Busquets has made 238 official appearances for the club, and has been a first team regular since the 2008/09 season.

“A dream come true”

The midfielder told fcbarcelona.com and Barça TV that he’s realising his dream: “To be in the best Club in the world is a dream come true, this is the Club of my life. I’m very happy.” Busquets, who has made 238 appearances for Barça, added: “Each day I try to improve and be in the best possible condition, help and work for the team, for the manager, for the coaching staff ... I want people to be happy with me, both the fans and the Club.”

His philosophy also hasn’t changed: “I’m still young and I hope to continue improving. I want to win more titles, fight to win each match, win and put on a show with the same philosophy that we’ve had up until now. We’re doing well for now.”
