Chinese club 'positive' of signing Iniesta

Guardiola wishes Iniesta the best ahead of potential Barcelona exit

Barcelona playmaker Andres Iniesta is reportedly set to sign for Chinese Super League Chongqing Dangdai Lifan at the end of the season.

The Spain and Barca icon rolled back the years with a marvellous display on Sunday (AEST) as the Catalans crushed Sevilla 5-0 to lift the Copa del Rey - Iniesta scoring their fourth.

Iniesta has played for the club through its youth ranks since 1996, and has made over 650 first-team appearances over 16 seasons.

The Tianjin club threatened to sue media outlets who linked the 33-year-old with a move there.

Lizhang made headlines in England a year ago by hiring Tony Adams as manager of Granada, a Spanish football club he owns.

The Spanish worldwide who spoke after the game, said he is weighing up an offer from China that would take him away from his boyhood club.

Last summer, Iniesta accepted an invitation by Jiang to pay a visit to Chongqing. A video of Jiang being interviewed by a Chinese football media outlet has been shared on Chinese social media in which he confirms that business relationship but refuses to comment on the transfer.

He also told Xinhua that SWM is positive about the possibility of Iniesta leaving the Nou Camp.

"Iniesta's arrival would be beneficial for Chongqing and a great bonus for our brand", Gong added.
