Born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Busquets was a FC Barcelona graduate. He made his La Liga debut for the first team on 7 November 1993 in a 2–1 home win over Racing de Santander, going on to appear in the following two games. However, Busquets was mostly back-up for Spanish international Andoni Zubizarreta during his first years; he did appear, however, in the 1990–91 European Cup Winners' Cup final in a 1–2 loss against Manchester United, with two goals from Mark Hughes.
After Zubizarreta left for Valencia CF, Busquets played 69 matches in two seasons, including a 4–0 thrashing of Manchester United in the group stage of 1994–95's UEFA Champions League, but during this period Barça failed to win any silverware. For the subsequent seasons he was again back-up, to Portugal's Vítor Baía and Dutchman Ruud Hesp.
Until his retirement in June 2003 Busquets played a further four years with Catalonia neighbours UE Lleida, spending two seasons apiece in Segunda División and Segunda División B. Afterwards he joined Barcelona's coaching staff, and worked with the goalkeepers.
