Vissel executive denies deal done for Barcelona's Andres Iniesta


Last month, Iniesta announced that he would be leaving Barcelona, who he joined at the age of 12, and has been strongly linked with clubs in China, Japan and Australia.

When asked about his thoughts on Guardiola, Iniesta said the current Manchester City boss is: "A master for me".

That would be an impressive way for the 33-year-old to bow out, and for the time being he will not offer many hints about what lies in store for him next.

'As it stands, he is an Atletico player and anything I say about him isn't going to change that.

Regarding his own Barcelona future, the midfielder said: I've nearly come to the end of my commitments with Barcelona and it's true that I have various offers to think about and in the next week, 10 days, I'll try and decide which one is the best for me.

Wayne Rooney to join MLS club DC United
Wayne Rooney is considering leaving Everton in a shock summer transfer. "I wouldn't consider anything on the cards at the moment". DC United have not responded to a request for comment. "There have been rumours about Wayne going overseas , China or America".

"I have a week-and-a-half left to enjoy and when the season ends my mind will be on the national team and my future".

"But we've got some funds available as well and if we can contribute - and it would be a contribution, it wouldn't be the bulk of what he could earn - then we think it's money well spent". "Honestly, that doesn't strike me as being realistic", Miura said.

Kobe sports director Atsuhiro Miura insisted that reports club president Hiroshi Mikitani had offered the Spanish World Cup victor a three-year deal and a salary of $30 million were wide of the mark. "If he actually came he would be incredible - but it's not realistic". Such talks have definitely not taken place.

Whether an A-League club could afford Iniesta is questionable and Gallop confirmed FFA, which reportedly has three million Australian dollars to use on marquee players, would only contribute to a portion of the star's wages.
