Andres Iniesta: Midfielder expects to sign a new Barcelona contract

Speculation has claimed that Premier League rivals Manchester United and Manchester City will try to take advantage of a delay in Iniesta agreeing a new contract by making a move for the midfielder.

However, the Spain international spoke about his club future ahead of his country's World Cup qualifier against Georgia as rumours persist that he could leave the Nou Camp when his current deal runs out.

"You have to be where you want to be, and Barca is the place for me," Iniesta told Movistar's webpage.

"The club knows that and wants me to stay, so I hope and expect to spend the years I have left playing there."

One player who did leave Spanish football in the summer to head to England was Real Madrid's Mesut Ozil and the Germany international's switch to Arsenal surprised Iniesta.

"I was surprised Real Madrid sold him," he continued.

"Right now he is one of the best in the world when it comes to linking up with and getting the most out of other players."

Barcelona have made a 100 per cent start to the campaign and Iniesta has been delighted with the arrival of new coach Tata Martino.

"Tata has come in and kept things ticking along," he added. "The philosophy he believes in and gets across is very similar to the one we have had all along.

"I am hoping for a great year and that is the way things are shaping up."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
