Iniesta contradicts Bartomeu: There is no agreement over contract extension

Published

on

Andres Iniesta was greeted by a wave of media at Barcelona airport on Wednesday, but he surprised them all by denying that he has agreed to extend his stay at the Camp Nou.

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu stated a contract extension had been ‘agreed in principle’, but the midfielder has rejected the claims.

Iniesta was brief, but clear. « No », he said, responding to media asking about the potential deal, fueling doubts about his future with the Spanish giants.

Bartomeu has been heavily criticised after allowing Neymar’s departure to PSG and failing to secure a number of key transfer targets before the window closed last week.

The midfield maestro’s current position, with his contract expiring on June 30 next year, represents another problem for the Barcelona board. The club will want to tie the 33-year-old down to a new deal and put an end to interest from Italian giants Juventus.

Iniesta is a consistent starter in Ernesto Valverde’s side and has been an instrumental figure at the Camp Nou over the last 15 years. If the club legend does not sign a new contract extension, he will leave on a free next summer.

Juve are currently three points behind Barça, and can still hope to get first place in the group, synonymous with better draw for the next round. But at the end of the match, when Barcelona’s Ivan Rakitic told reporters about the future of Leo Messi, the journalists did not believe their ears.

Indeed, the situation of the Argentine international concerns leaders, fans, but also players. Messi’s contract ends in June, and he has not officially extended his lease. From January, he will be able to negotiate freely with other clubs, to the displeasure of the fans. The Croatian therefore launched a sacred statement:

« I can not say he will stay 100%. It’s his decision, you must respect it.  »
Journalists at a press conference did not hesitate to insist on getting more information but Rakitic did not comment further on the situation, saying simply that he wants to « play with him tomorrow and for the next five years « .
