Manchester United £35 million bid for world cup winner

There are reports today that Manchester United are set to swoop for Barcelona defensive midfielder Sergio Busquets after his contract talks with the Spanish side broke down.
The Sunday Mirror reports that Sir Alex Ferguson has been alerted to the fact that the 22-year-old has failed to agree new terms with the Catalan club and is ready to put in a £35 million bid for the World Cup winner.
It is believed that money is the barrier to a new deal being signed with Busquets demanding more than the La Liga champions are willing to pay him.
Barcelona are offering Busquets a two-year extension on his current deal to 2015 and while the talks are stalling his agent is playing the loyalty card and talking up his attachment to the club.
“Sergio is a Barca fan and now his head is at the club, but it is normal to consider other options.
“I have received calls from some big clubs asking me about his situation, but his future is in the hands of Barcelona.”
Busquets came up through Barca’s youth ranks and made his debut in September 2008 and has since made over 100 appearances for the club in little more than two years.
He made his international debut for Spain in 2009 and other than being substituted in Spain’s 1-0 opening game defeat by Switzerland he played every minute in their successful World Cup Finals campaign last summer.
