Here’s what Busi has had to say.

“Hello Culers. The time has come to announce this will be my last season at Barcelona. It has been an unforgettable journey. Since I was a child coming to the matches or watching them on TV. I always dreamed of playing with this shirt in this stadium. And reality has exceeded my dreams.

“I wouldn’t have believed you if you’d told me when I arrived as a youth player that I would play 15 seasons at the best club in the world. The club of my life, of which I have been, am, and always be a fan, member, player, captain. And surpass 700 matches.

“It has been an honour, a dream, a source of pride, and meant everything to defend and represent this badge for so many years, but everything has a beginning and an end, and although it has not been an easy decision, I think the time has come.”

Busquets also goes on to give thanks to all the staff who have helped him throughout his career, his team-mates past and presents, the fans, and his family, before signing off with the following.....

“Being a Barca fan is the best thing there is.”

Farewell, legend, and thank you.
