Who is Sergio Busquets?

Sergio Busquets Burgos (born July 16, 1988) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for Barcelona and the Spanish national team. He is regarded as one of the best defensive midfielders of all time and a deep-lying playmaker capable of guiding the game with short and controlled deliveries.

He joined Barcelona’s first team in July 2008 and has since made over 600 appearances for the club. In 2008–09 and 2014–15, he was a member of the teams that won the treble of La Liga, Copa del Rey, and the UEFA Champions League.

He is the son of Carles Busquets, a former Spanish professional goalkeeper who played in the 1990s for FC Barcelona. The Busquets, the Sanchis, and the Maldini families are the only families in which both father and son have won the Champions League (moreover with the same club).

He was born in Sabadell and joined the club’s youth ranks in the summer of 2005, arriving from Jabac. Sergio Busquets actually signed with La Masía, the FC Barcelona academy. He played with the junior A team in the same season, winning three important trophies alongside Bojan, Giovani, Jeffren, and Marc Crosas.

He joined Lleida Academy in his school life. His father’s name is Carles Busquets and his mother’s name is Loli Burgos. He has got one brother and his name is Aitor Busquets. Busquets began a relationship with Elena Galera in 2014. They have two kids, one born in 2016 and the other in 2018.

The 33-year-old Spanish is 74inches tall and weighs 76kg. He’s quite active on social media and has 4.2million followers on his Instagram.

In his second season, he scored seven goals in 26 games for the Juvenil A team, and two years later, he was promoted to the B team under Pep Guardiola, where he helped them gain promotion to the third level. He made his first-team debut the following season, coming on as a substitute in the Copa Catalunya.

On September 13, 2008, Busquets made his La Liga debut, playing 90 minutes in a 1–1 home tie with Racing Santander. He scored his second goal with Barcelona in the 2008–09 UEFA Champions League against Basel at St. Jakob-Park on October 22, 2008, in a 5–0 group stage win.

M) (Real Madrid).

On 27 January 2011, he signed a contract extension that would keep him at the club until 2015 – the buyout clause was increased to €150 million.
