The midfielder will consider his future when his deal expires next years

Barcelona captain Sergio Busquets says he won't be a problem for the club as he comes to the end of his contract at Camp Nou.

The midfielder has a deal until 2023 and his short-term goal is to play for Spain at the World Cup later this year in Qatar.

However, beyond then, he does not know what will come next and doesn't rule out leaving Barça if it feels right when his current terms expire in just over a year.

"I think I can help and I am helping," he said. "I still have a year on my contract. I am going step by step. I know I am 33. I will end this season and go into the last year of my deal, with the World Cup, so it will be different with the break in the middle for that.

"I hope I can play at the World Cup. After that, I will see how I am, what the coach [Xavi] wants from me, the club... And we will decide. I will not be a problem, honestly.

"When my contract expires, maybe the coach and the club will want me to continue, but maybe I will feel the moment has arrived.

"There are a lot of things to consider. But right now I feel good and am enjoying myself. We're going to try to end the season as strongly as possible in LaLiga and the Europa League."
