Barcelona star Andres Iniesta is currently unhappy with the situation at Camp Nou and has been hit hard by the imminent departure of a key ally.
According to Punto Pelota, the Spain midfielder has been “pretty pissed off” with the way that Barcelona have played in the past few weeks.
Tito Vilanova’s side have just clinched the Spanish title but were humiliated 7-0 on aggregate by Bayern Munich in their Champions League semi-final clash.
Many have called it the end of an era for Barcelona, though the fitness issues of star man Lionel Messi may have had more to do with it.
However, it did highlight how important Messi is to the Catalan club’s success on the pitch and the massive drop in their effectiveness when he isn’t playing.
Iniesta is also said to be shocked at the decision of Victor Valdes to leave the club, with some reports claiming the goalkeeper has informed the Camp Nou hierarchy that he wants a transfer this summer.
Valdes and Iniesta are very close friends and the report claims the midfielder has pleaded with his fellow World Cup and European Championships winner to stay, but to no avail.
Spanish press have also claimed Barcelona are ready to offload a number of players to trim down the squad and allow space for some new faces.
The Punto Pelota report reveals Iniesta’s unhappiness but go on to say he is no way ready to leave Camp Nou and remains committed to Barcelona.
