Iniesta subject of China interest

Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta is the subject of interest from the Chinese Super League and may decide on a move, say reports in Spain.

The 33-year-old signed a ‘lifetime contract’ with the Catalan giants earlier this season, meaning he would be able to renew each season should he wish to continue along with the club.

El Mundo Deportivo state there are ‘sizable’ economic offers on the table from the Far East, which the midfielder has not ‘totally discounted’.

The arrival of Philippe Coutinho is likely to lessen Barca’s reliance on their long-serving midfielder, who has spent the entirety of his professional career at the Camp Nou.

His decision on renewing his stay must be made by 30 April and he is likely to remain, although the report states no ‘certain’ decision has been taken as things stand.
