Barcelona president Sandro Rosell has attacked Manchester City over their pursuit of Sergio Busquets.

Rosell has blasted City and warned them off making a move for Busquets, while he also aimed a swipe at Arsenal for their raids on the club's academy by luring away their best young players.

"Manchester City want to remove our players and want to destabilise us," said Rosell. "It also happens with Arsenal, who come knocking for youth football players and offer them a lot of money.

"Now City have joined in. We are the enemy to beat. There are a lot of people who don't want us to win.

"But we must be calm - Busquets is another example like Messi, Valdes, Xavi, Puyol and the rest.

"We have great players and they are 100 per cent Barcelona."
