Barcelona draw up transfer shortlist to replace Sergio Busquets, including Man City star Rodri


RODRI has been named as a possible name to replace the indomitable Sergio Busquets at Barcelona at the end of the season, according to reports.

Busquets, 34, is set to leave Camp Nou when his contract expires at the end of the season after 15 years of loyal first-team service.

And the Catalonia-based giants have drawn up a list of three candidates to replace him, as Sport report.

Manchester City stalwart Rodri is one of the names on the list, and he’s joined by fellow Premier League star Jorginho.

The other name on their list is Bayern Munich star Joshua Kimmich.

Barcelona have an idea of ​​who is high on their wish list, but will assess the economics of these deals.

Both Rodri and Kimmich have valuations of at least £70million – values ​​which the club regard as high.

Therefore, that means Chelsea star Jorginho is the most likely candidate to replace Busquets this summer.

The Italian’s future at Stamford Bridge has been up in the air for some time now.

The 30-year-old now has less than a year left on his current contract, which means he will be a free agent this summer unless Graham Potter deems him worthy of a new contract under his tutelage.

Earlier reports had already hinted that Barcelona are tracking Jorginho with a view to shaking things up already in January.

Due to the World Cup break, Jorginho has just under two months to convince Potter and Todd Boehly of his usefulness beyond this season if he is to earn a new contract before the next transfer window.

But Barcelona will be waiting in the wings regardless.

Jorginho could leave Chelsea at the end of the season
