Manchester United Eye Move For Sergio Busquets As Barcelona Contract Negotiations Break Down - Report

Manchester United are said to have been alerted that Sergio Busquets' contract talks with Barcelona have supposedly broken down.

The defensive midfielder is thought to have been in negotiations with the Catalan club over the past few months concerning a two-year extension, but it has been reported that the two parties involved have been unable as yet to come to an understanding concerning the player's wages.

Now The Mirror claims that the Red Devils will swoop to snap up the 22-year-old during the summer, with United scouts having already watched the midfielder in action.

Busquets' current contract with Barca expires in 2013, and it seems likely that the reigning Primera Division champions will make further efforts to reach an agreement with a player currently placed 126th in the Castrol Rankings before resigning themselves to losing him to a major European rival.
