Iniesta drops new contract hint

Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta has dropped a massive hint he is on the verge of renewing his contract at the club.

The 33-year-old’s deal at the Camp Nou expires at the end of the current campaign with fears he could leave the club whom he initially joined as a 12-year-old in 1996.

“I think the good news will arrive soon,” Iniesta is quoted as saying by Mundo Deportivo after being asked about a contract renewal.

Iniesta has been linked with a move to Italian champions Juventus next summer as a free agent while Blaugrana president Josep Maria Bartomeu has repeatedly said a new deal is close.
