It looks for all the world that Andres Iniesta will leave Barcelona this summer.

The Spaniard has become a legend at the Camp Nou, making more than 650 appearances since his debut in 2002.

But the 33-year-old looks set to leave the club with reports suggesting he will reveal his next step after the Copa del Rey final this weekend against Sevilla.

It’s being claimed in China that Iniesta’s next club will be Chongqing Danghai Lifan in the Chinese Super League.

Chinese outlet PPTV, who have La Liga rights, claim that Iniesta has agreed to join the club owned by businessman Jiang Lizhang.

Incidentally, Lizhang also has a share in Spanish side Granada and Media Base Sports - the company that controls Iniesta's image rights.

That move suddenly makes a lot of sense.


But the more reliable Mundo Deportivo - a Spanish outlet - believe there’s another club involved in the fight for Iniesta’s signature.

Again, they play in the Chinese Super League.

That’s because Tianjin Quanjian have also presented a “significant offer” that would “multiply Iniesta's current salary several times.”

Iniesta is yet to have signed anything and clearly has a big decision to make.


One thing is fairly certain, though. This season is highly likely to be Iniesta’s last at Barcelona.

And it seems he’s got a decision between the teams that are 8th and 10th in the CSL.

First, though, Iniesta will be looking to win his 31st trophy as a Barca player this weekend against Sevilla.

He will then surely claim his ninth La Liga title with Ernesto Valverde’s side 12 points clear at the top of the table and still unbeaten.
