he 33-year-old has been linked with a move to the Chinese League at the end of this season – He maintains that he will only consider playing for a team that will never come against the Catalan club Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta has admitted that he doesn’t know where his future lies having being linked with a move away from the Camp Nou this summer according to Tribal Football. The 2010 World Cup winner has won 29 titles with the Catalan club since he got promoted to the club’s senior team in 2002. Iniesta, 33, who joined Barca as a youth player from Albacete in 1996, has been tipped to move to the Chinese Super League at the end of this European League season.
I have not taken the decision 100 per cent,” he told El Larguero. “I will not change it because of what one or the other says. The one I take will be because of what I feel. If I stay, it’s about 200 percent, as I’ve always been. “If I do not do it, it’s because I’m not 200 percent that the club needs me. It’s the only question I have.” He insisted that he is yet to reach a conclusion on where he will be playing next season, but added that he will not be playing for any club that will contend against the team he has played most of his professional career for.
He added: “I would not go anywhere that competed with my club, it would be unnatural, just as one thing is closed, another would be opened. But all scenarios are possible.” Iniesta won the 2010 World Cup for the first time in his senior national team career – beating the Netherlands 1-0 after extra time in South Africa. He grew through the ranks with the Spanish national team, winning the UEFA European Championship at the U17 and U19 levels before claiming the same award back to back with his country senior team in 2008 and 2012.
