Manchester City, United and PSG target, Andres Iniesta, has denied that there is friction between himself and current club Barcelona, according to Goal.

There has been intense speculation surrounding the Spain playmaker's future at Barcelona, particularly in the wake of rumours that there are ongoing problems concerning his negotiations over a new contract.

However Iniesta has moved to play down talk that there remains issues between himself and his current club, and reiterate the fact that he is happy at Barcelona and wishes to play out the remainder of his career in Spain.

"There is nothing strange or any war going on between Barca and Iniesta. The club wants me here and I want to stay here," Iniesta said.

"I have said many times that my aim is to retire here and the club wants the same. We all want to reach an agreement."

English giants Manchester City and Manchester United have expressed a desire to bring him to the Premier League if the 29-year-old remains reluctant to sign a new deal at Barcelona, with his current contract set to run out in 2015.

PSG are also said to be monitoring the situation of the World Cup winner, as Laurent Blanc looks to further his side's European credentials.

Iniesta has found playing time more difficult to come by this year, as the arrival of Neymar and impressive form of Cesc Fabregas has given Gerardo Martino cause to leave him on the bench.
