Manchester City Transfer Rumors: EPL Champions Linked With Sergio Busquets

English Premier League champions Manchester City are tracking Barcelona's midfielder Sergio Busquets. If reports are to be believed, then apparently, Busquets is not happy with Tito Villanova's decision to bring in Alex Song to challenge for his spot in the Camp Nou starting eleven.

Busquets is in his fifth season as a first team regular ar his Catalan side, marking over 200 appearances and winning high awards. Though well known for his diving, the Spaniard is a very able midfielder who is comfortable on the ball and a player that Villanova won't be keen to lose. 

Manchester City coach Robert Mancini is a big fan of the holding midfielder and will break bank to get him at the Etihad. His interest in the 24-year-old Barcelona star comes despite the fact the Italian only recently signed two defensively minded midfielders in the form of Javi Garcia and Jack Rodwell. Earlier in 2010, football chief Brian Marwood made an attempt to prise Busquets away from the Camp Nou.

The Man City boss already had the likes of Yaya Toure and Gareth Barry in his squad to add that steely edge but that doesn't appear to mean Mancini can't target another big name signing.

As yet, Song has failed to dislodge the locally born enforcer but the signing of the Arsenal player could clearly lead Busquets to feel his place is under threat.
