Chongqing Dangdai Lifan Coach Paulo Bento confessed ‘any Coach in the world would want Andres Iniesta’ amid reports of a move.
The Barcelona captain is set to make an imminent announcement on his future with indications pointing towards a move to the Chinese Super League club at the end of the campaign.
“At the moment this is just a rumour and it is always hard to talk about rumours,” Bento, who formerly managed Portugal, is cited as saying by Marca.
“That being said, I do not think there are any fans in the world of any football Coach would not want a player like Andres Iniesta on their team.”
Iniesta, who celebrates his 34th birthday next month, has given various hints that he will end his long-term association with Barca in the summer.
