Manchester City and Arsenal are keeping a close eye on Barca playmaker Andres Iniesta after he hinted at a possible summer exit.
Barcelona star Andres Iniesta has hinted that he might leave the Camp Nou this summer after losing out on the La Liga title to Atletico Madrid on the final day of the league campaign last Saturday.
The 30-year old star was very emotional after falling short at the final hurdle, and suggested that the loss may have signaled the end of an era – comments which have caught the attention of English giants Arsenal and Manchester United, who might want to sign the midfielder.
The playmaker is also not entirely sure of his own future despite having committed to a new deal at the club last December, and there have been many doubts lingering about his future at the club following a rather unpleasant conclusion to contract negotiations with the Catalan giants in December.
Iniesta’s situation at the Camp Nou is being monitored rather keenly by Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United, who could be vying for his signature if he does indeed decide to draw the curtains on his 18-year long stint with Barcelona.
Man City and the Gunners are at the front of the queue to sign the esteemed Spanish international, with both David Silva and Santi Cazorla each leading calls for his acquisition.
After a 1-1 draw at home lost them the La Liga title, the 30 year-old was disconsolate.
“We were relying on winning this game,” Iniesta is quoted as saying in the Daily Express.
“We haven’t and that makes this season disappointing, because if we had won, everything would be different.
“The season is over – lots of things are over.”
