According to Spanish newspaper AS, Pep Guardiola is trying to convince Andres Iniesta to join Manchester City.

The Barcelona midfielder is set to announce his departure from the Catalan club this week and it’s widely reported that a move to China is on the cards but that is not the only offer on the table. One of these offers, according to AS, is from Manchester City.

The Premier League champions are said to be keen on adding the midfielder to their team as Guardiola wants to work with the 33-year-old once again. The newspaper also claimed that Luis Enrique wants to sign Iniesta if replaces Arsène Wenger at Arsenal. The ex-Barca coach is on a break from football but has been tipped to arrive at The Emirates this summer.

Iniesta’s reported transfer to China has not been confirmed by the player or the potential club, meaning he may be open to reject any offer to reunite with Guardiola in England this summer.

AS speculates that Iniesta is open to changing his destination to either the Premier League or to Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain. Barcelona have made it clear that they would not stand in the midfielder’s way if he decides to leave the club at the end of the season.

Iniesta played a starring role in Barcelona’s 5-0 demolition of Sevilla in the Copa del Rey Final last Saturday. He scored the third goal and was subbed off and was received with a standing ovation in the Wanda Metropolitano, perhaps the best way to end a magnificent career in Spain.
