Barcelona president Sandro Rosell has revealed that he expects Andres Iniesta to sign a new contract, reports Goal.com.
Iniesta, a youth player who has come through the ranks at the Nou Camp, has made over 300 appearances in 11 years.
The attacking midfielder has established himself as one of the best footballers in the world during that time, playing a key-role in Barcelona's monumental success in the last few years with a mix of creative passing, close ball control and expert dribbling.
The midfielders 13 assists last season was only bettered by new Arsenal signing Mesut Ozil and regularly provides the foil for the World player of the year Lionel Messi.
The Spaniard has won six La Liga titles in his time with the Catalan giants as well as three Champions League winners medals.
Iniesta's career- high arguably came in the 2010 World Cup final where he grabbed the winning goal in extra-time against Holland to help Spain to their first ever World Cup success.
And Rosell is keen to reward Iniesta for a stellar career to date.
He said: “Iniesta is a key player for us,"
“It is likely that the next great news for Barcelona will be the renewal of Iniesta’s contract.”
Iniesta's Barcelona have made a good start to life under new coach Tata Martino who replaced Tito Villanova who was forced to step down for ill health.
The Catalans are top of La Liga with three wins out of three, scoring an impressive 11 goals in the process as they look to defend their title primarily from fierce rivals Real Madrid who have recently broke the world transfer record to sign Gareth Bale.
