Manchester United undeterred in Barcelona midfielder chase

Manchester United and Manchester City will still make offers for Barcelona contract rebel Andres Iniesta - even after the Spanish midfielder reiterated his commitment to the Catalan club, reports the Daily Express.

The 29-year-old has spent his entire career at Camp Nou, but there have been recent suggestions that Iniesta could leave, after talks over a new contract seemingly stalled.

Red Devils boss David Moyes has been credited with an interest in bringing Iniesta to Old Trafford, as he looks to add a creative midfielder to the Premier League champions' ranks in January.

Manchester United could face some competition from local rivals Manchester City, with Manuel Pellegrini also monitoring the Barcelona star's situation closely.

Iniesta is paying little attention to transfer speculation though, and took the opportunity to distance himself from a transfer, ahead of Spain's upcoming World Cup qualifier against Georgia.

He also spoke of just how happy he is at Barcelona, following the arrival of new manager Gerardo Martino.

"Tata has come in and kept things ticking along," he said. "The philosophy he believes in and gets across is very similar to the one we have had all along.

"I am hoping for a great year and that is the way things are shaping up."

Despite Iniesta's recent comments, both Manchester United and Manchester City are expected to press ahead with their attempts to lure him to the Premier League in a cut-price deal in the New Year, with his current contract set to expire at the end of the season.
