The left-back will miss his dear friend... but could be leaving himself

Jordi Alba was one of the first to say goodbye to Sergio Busquets after the news of his definitive departure from FC Barcelona.

The Barça player, a teammate and friend of Busquets for many years, has shared a heartfelt message dedicated to the veteran midfielder.

This is Jordi Alba's full message to Busquets: 

"Friend, after so many experiences together, what can I tell you that you don't know? You leave your home leaving an indelible mark in the history of Barça.

"More than 700 games and a fundamental part of so many titles and nights of glory that all the culers will always remember.

"It has been a great pride to share these years at your side on the pitch, and an immense fortune to enjoy your friendship and that of your family. We love you very much and wish you the best of luck in what is to come! Thank you for everything".

The Barça full-back has always been very close to Busquets through his years at the club, and is also waiting to resolve his own future.

Following the news of Busi's departure, SPORT reported on the summit for Jordi Alba's future.

The club has presented two proposals to the player: a possible termination of the player's contract so that he leaves the club this season, or a significant salary reduction.

For now, the player seems willing to talk about everything. He has one more year on his contract with the club and does not refuse to leave on a transfer next summer.

Jordi Alba, in that sense, understands the economic situation of the club and would accept departing with a series of conditions.

He will not go to any "exotic" destination and rejects any interest from leagues such as MLS or Saudi Arabia.
