After Neymar, PSG again interested in signing another Barcelona star

According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, French Champions PSG are interested in signing Barcelona midfield star, Sergio Busquets. Busquets has a release clause of 200 million Euros and PSG will be most likely forced to pay the entire amount. Busquets has been a vital cog for Barcelona ever since Pep Guardiola took over and every manager he has played under has nothing but high praise for him. Unlike Neymar, Busquets is a local lad and has claimed before that he would like to finish his career at the Catalan club.

Barcelona have had an excellent transfer window so far managing to sign Coutinho and Yerry Mina and getting rid of Arda Turan. There are still rumours on the futures of Rafinha, Vidal and Deulofeu all of whom who are not an important part of the first team. With Griezmann rumoured to be joining Barcelona in the summer, the future certainly looks bright for the Catalans.
