Oriol Busquets has found a new club after confirming his departure from Barcelona and will play for Ligue 1 side Clermont next season.
The midfielder has joined the French club on a free transfer, signing a three-year contract that runs until 2024. He seems pretty happy with his move too as he prepares for a new challenge away from the Camp Nou.
“I’m very happy to be here, in this city, in this club which has, I think, the same goals as me,” he said. “I will do my best and work hard to make the fans happy. ”

Newly-promoted Clement have enjoyed a strong start to their first ever season in Ligue 1, beating Bordeaux and Troyes and drawing 3-3 at Lyon in their opening three matches.
Busquets will now be hoping he can make an impact in Ligue 1 and will come up against Lionel Messi and PSG next month when Clermont head to the Parc des Princes on September 12.
