His trophy haul includes eight La Liga titles (which could become nine), three UEFA champions league trophies, seven Copa del Reys, and seven Spanish Super Cups.

“It has been an unforgettable journey, I always dreamed of playing with this shirt and at this stadium. Reality has exceeded all my dreams. Although it has not been an easy decision, I think the time has come. It has been an honour, a dream, a source of pride, and it meant everything to defend and represent this badge for so many years. But everything has a beginning and an end. I want to thank all the people who made this possible from the first day to the last.” Busquets said.

Sergio Busquets made his senior debut for Barcelona in 2008 after joining the youth team in 2005. Hee could cap his exit with another La Liga title that will make it the 9th La Liga title he has won at the club.
Barcelona are currently at the top of the La Liga table with 13 points ahead of rivals Real Madrid with five matches left in the La Liga season.

The Blaugrana will travel to Espanyol this weekend for their next La Liga game, which, if they get a victory, would get them within a point or two more of securing the La Liga title.
