Finally Sergio Busquets will not stay with Spanish National Team and will return to Barcelona due to discomfort on his right hand. The player has a fractured finger and does not want to take any risk.

The Spanish federation didn't give further details and just wrote a short statement on their website: "Busquets did not participate in training and will have a recovery session in the gym".

Busquets injured his finger while facing Eibar on March 6. He then rested in the next game against Getafe but returned to action to face Arsenal and Villarreal last week.

Thus, the midfielder will not play any of the two friendlies scheduled this week: Thursday March 24 vs Italy and Sunday March 27 against Romania. That means than Busquets should be well recovered and rested for the Clásico, which will be played on April 2.
