Sergio Busquets is heading towards the end of his incredible career at Barcelona but it’s still not entirely clear how the Catalans will replace the midfielder.

Xavi’s side have been linked with a whole host of players including Martin Zubimendi and Ruben Neves but may struggle to make signings for financial reasons.

There are also several players at the club who could do the job, such as Frenkie de Jong or Franck Kessie.

Center-back Eric Garcia has also emerged as an option in recent weeks after being trialled in midfield by Xavi in La Liga.

And then there’s always Nico Gonzalez, who is due back from a loan spell with Valencia. The youngster has long been tipped to be Busquets’ successor but it’s not clear right now if he’s even in Barca’s plans for next season.

And so it’s over to you!
