As per Marca, the winery is central to the deal that will see the World Cup winner join an unnamed Chinese outfit - with reports saying an exportation of two million bottles of wine to China is expected to come about in the coming year.

Iniesta's product is also to be heavily advertised as part of the arrangement, which is an added bonus to the hefty contract he will be receiving upon his arrival.

The four-time Champions League winner cut an emotional figure after the Blaugrana were knocked out of the competition by Roma after a quarter final second leg collapse - Iniesta admitting he may well have played his last UCL game in a post-match interview.

Iniesta, who came through the youth ranks to become one of the club's finest ever players, confirmed that this season will be his last in Barca colours.

"I already know what I'm going to do about my future," he said after the 2-1 win over Valencia at the weekend.

"I'm grateful for the affection of the fans, but that won't change my decision."
