Gaizka Mendieta believes it's unlikely Andres Iniesta will join Manchester United, reports talkSPORT

However, the former Barcelona player won't completely rule out a move and suggests it could happen. 

The Spanish international has been linked with a shock move to Old Trafford in recent time as he's yet to agree a new contract with the Catalan giants. However Mendieta believes the superstar is happy at the Spanish champions. 

Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show, Mendieta said: “You can never say never, but I think Iniesta is happy to be at Barcelona.

"Tata Martino is imposing this rotation, which I think we all agree they all needed, but players never like. I'm sure there will be a point where Iniesta and Barcelona will reach agreement.

"The fact they say there is no rush in the negotiations means they seem happy to wait and see what happens.

"Barcelona is going great. Maybe the style of football is not what it was like years ago, but they are still winning.”

United are in need of a new central-midfielder as £27.5 million man Marouane Fellaini has yet to find his feet at Old Trafford. 

David Moyes had previously tried to sign Iniesta's teammate Cesc Fabregas last summer, but now his attention has seemingly turned to the 29-year-old. 

United have been dealt another blow in the last few days as main-stay Michael Carrick has been ruled out of action until December with an injury.
