Andres Iniesta hints at shock Barcelona exit

Published 1 Comments

Andres Iniesta has hinted that he could make a sensational exit from Barcelona this summer, with Arsenal and Manchester City both said to be on red alert.

According to the Express the Catalan icon sparked wild transfer rumours following his side’s draw with Atletico Madrid at the weekend, a result which handed their opponents the La Liga title. Despite the fact that Iniesta has been at the Nou Camp for the entirety of his career, there’s now belief that he is may be looking to move to the Premier League in the coming months, with City and Arsenal touted as potential destinations.

After the draw with Atletico, the 30-year-old said: “We were relying on winning this game.

"We haven't and that makes this season disappointing, because if we had won, everything would be different.

"The season is over, lots of things are over."

Whilst the first two comments are little more than Iniesta lamenting a missed opportunity to claim yet another La Liga crown, the Express claim that the last one may be of some significance with his future in mind. The reports goes on to state that the World Cup winner is still less than pleased with how his contract talks were handled before he penned a new deal last year.

With both Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla and City’s David Silva said to be trying to persuade Iniesta to join them in the Premier League it would seem that their respective clubs have the upper hand. There’s sure to be an incredible amount of interest in him if he does in fact wish to leave Catalonia, even if the prospect of him departing is considered unthinkable by many.
