Andres Iniesta 'In Talks' To Become Player/Assistant Manager At Premier League Club
Andres Iniesta will play his last game for Barcelona this evening against Real Sociedad as rumours continue to swirl surrounding his immediate future.
In recent weeks, the Spaniard has been linked with a move to the Chinese Super League.
As per Marca, a winery was reportedly central to a deal that would see the World Cup winner join an unnamed Chinese outfit.
The 33-year old midfielder set up 'Bodega Iniesta' - his very own wine business - in his hometown of Fuentealbilla in 2010 and his company's website has English and Mandarin pages.
But in recent hours, Iniesta has reportedly been offered a new role at a Premier League club.
Yahoo Sport claim that negotiations are already underway to make Andres Iniesta a player/manager at Manchester City. The fact that the midfielder could join former boss Pep Guardiola at the Etihad next season has certainly left fans excited.
The rumours do make sense. Mikel Arteta is set to leave his role as assistant, with a move to become Arsenal manager reportedly imminent.
Goal's Arsenal correspondent Chris Wheatley is claiming a deal for Arteta to take charge of Arsenal is nearing a completion.
Further reports in Spain suggest Arteta could lure Xabi Alonso back to England, and hire him as his assistant at Arsenal should he be appointed on a full-time basis.
Alonso is seeking for a opportunity in football management, while first earning his UEFA A and B licences as a No.2.
