Iniesta Only Has Eyes For Barcelona

Barcelona star Andres Iniesta does not suffer from the same kind of itchy feet as his club-mate Victor Valdes.

Alongside Lionel Messi and potentially Neymar, 29-year-old Iniesta is probably Barca’s most important player.

His midfield compadre, Xavi Hernandez, is 33-years-old and cannot hold down a first-team spot indefinitely.

That means the Blaugrana will rely on Iniesta’s artistry, vision and technique for years to come.

Fortunately for the Spanish champions, last year’s European Player of the Year only has eyes for Barcelona, and hopes to retire at the Camp Nou when his already stellar career comes to an end in the distant future.

Iniesta's current deal with Barca expires in 2015, and he is likely to pen a lengthy and lucrative extension before the new seasons begins.

"It is my dream to end my career at Barcelona. Nothing has changed in that regard. We will see how it all unfolds, but I do not expect any problems with my contract renewal," Iniesta told Sport.

"When both parties have the intention to continue together, the renewal should be done pretty quick.

"In the situation I find myself in, everybody in the world would want to be rewarded fairly. You have to give it good thought and make a decision.

"When we sit down and open talks, I hope it will be resolved quickly because we both want the same thing."
