Iniesta to stay at Barca for years to come, says Fernandez

Iniesta to stay at Barca for years to come, says Fernandez

Sometimes more often. They've only gone a little quiet of late with the attacking midfielder's form dipping following a winter layoff, an ankle injury the player has since struggled to fully recover from. Looking into his eyes I see that he is happy at Barcelona.

Verratti would be a better replacement because his role is similar to Iniesta's although Coutinho won't have any problem in adapting to life in Barcelona as he has already played for Espanyol at the beginning of his career.

The star duo tops Barcelona shortlist although the blaugrana won't be able to sign them both as the price-tags of both the Italy and Brazil International are astronomic. It all adds up to a slightly confusing picture, one that Mundo Deportivo's new report doesn't really add anything new to.

Instead, he is reportedly holding out for a move to Barcelona to link up with Brazil team-mate Neymar. His brilliant run has been awarded with a first call-up to the senior French squad with the Mirror also reporting that Antonio Conte has earmarked him for the summer.
