Chinese club confident of move for Spanish star

Guardiola wishes Iniesta the best ahead of potential Barcelona exit Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola heaped praise on Andres Iniesta ahead of his expected departure from

The World Cup-winning Spain stalwart enjoyed a trophy-laden spell under Guardiola's guidance at Camp Nou from 2008 until 2012, collecting a haul of honours including three La Liga titles and two Champions League crowns.

SWM chairman Gong Daxing has hinted that Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta is expected to complete his Chinese Super League (CSL) move in the summer.

Iniesta is tipped to announce his retirement after final of the Copa del Rey clash with Sevilla this weekend.

With rumours swirling that Andres Iniesta is on his way out of Barcelona at the end of the season, with a deal in China reportedly on the cards for the 33-year-old, La Liga may well have confirmed the end of his time with the Catalans.

"This week I will make the decision public", Iniesta said, according to Mundo Deportivo, as quoted by ESPN FC.

Oldest Person In The World Dies At 117
Nabi Tajima died of old age in a hospital at the city of Kikai in Japan , city official Susumu Yoshiyuki affirmed. She became the world's oldest person in September after the death of Jamaican woman Violet Brown , also aged 117.

Iniesta, who left the pitch in tears when he was substituted in the 88th minute, was cheered by both sets of fans, who chanted his name. "This is a title that we love and we will try to add the league title to finish the season on a high note".

Reports in Spanish media have said that Iniesta's lawyer and agent have come to an agreement with a CSL team last week and he will leave Barcelona for China on June 30. There are a lot of emotions, a lot of feelings and a lot of moods.

He will go down as one of football's greatest ever midfielders when he eventually retires and be remembered for his vision, intelligence and footwork.

Spain won that game 1-0 thanks to an Iniesta rocket and Crouch can remember thinking his performance was even more "unbelievable" than the goal itself.
