Iniesta: Money Not Important To Me

Andres Iniesta says he is likely to sign a contract extension with Barcelona soon.

The former European Player of the Year has been in negotiations with the Spanish champions and is alleged to have rejected an initial offer to extend his contract, which expires in June next year.

Manchester United and Manchester City are both said to be monitoring the situation, as they wait to see if Barca will relent and make Iniesta their second-highest earner below Lionel Messi.

For his part, the midfield maestro insists that he wants to stay at the Camp Nou and that the financial value of his contract has no bearing on his happiness at the club he has represented his whole footballing life.

“The renewal is not something which concerns me from day to day,” Iniesta told El Larguero.

“I do not care about being in second, third, or fourth place at Barca. I just want to feel the same from the club’s side, as what I feel for Barca.

“There are other things more important than money. If I had the intention to leave I would let my contract run down, but I do not want that. When the moment to renew arrives, it will arrive.

“If two people want to understand each other there is no problem. I do not like to call it ‘negotiations’; Barca is my family. You never sort these things out in just two months.”
