Manchester United plot January bid for Iniesta

Published 7 Comments

Andres Iniesta is considering his future at Barcelona and could yet move to Manchester United, who are planning to make an offer in January, according to the Daily Mail.

The 29-year-old Spanish World Cup winner, who is universally regarded as one of the most gifted players of his generation, has yet to agree an extension on his current contract, which expires in 2015.

Iniesta is believed to be unhappy with Barcelona's decision to part company with his favoured physio Emili Ricart before the start of the season.

He cites Ricart as the man who inspired his recovery from injury before the 2010 World Cup finals.

The Barcelona star, who has won 21 trophies at the Camp Nou, went on to score the winning goal in the final against the Netherlands - securing Spain's first ever World Cup triumph in the process.

Iniesta has also started on the bench on several occasions this season, with new coach Tata Martino preferring Cesc Fabregas and Neymar for certain matches, such as Sunday's 4-1 victory over Real Betis.

United boss David Moyes is now poised to make a bid for the attacking midfielder when the transfer re-opens in January.

After missing out on Cesc Fabregas in the summer, it seems there's a chance that Moyes could end up landing the former Arsenal midfielder's even more revered Barcelona teammate.
