Iniesta chooses where to continue his career
In late April, Barcelona’s midfielder and captain Andres Iniesta announced that he will leave the club at the end of this season. Iniesta played a total of 669 matches with FC Barcelona over 16 seasons, starting in 1996.
Along with 2 goals and 3 assists the footballer has played 41 matches this season. Iniesta won witn Barcelona eight La Liga titles, six Cups of Spain, four Champions League titles and three FIFA Club World Cups.
Andres Iniesta may leave for Australia. As media reported, a 33-year-old footballer is attracted to life in Australia, since he considers it a good place to live for his family. Earlier media reported that the Chinese Chongqing Lifan offered the Spaniard a 3-year contract and a total of €81 million after taxes.
In case of moving to China, Iniesta would become one of the highest-paid players in the world, but the Chinese club eventually refused its offer, saying that although it would not invite Iniesta, the club would cooperate with the footballer.
In addition, Iniesta has offers from the U.S. and Canada, but he will announce his final decision on May 20, after the final game in the Spanish championship between FC Barcelona and Real Sociedad.
Morata aims to secure a return to Juventus
Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata can return to Turin and again become a player of Juventus, for who he competed from 2014 to 2016. For the sake of returning to Turin, the Spaniard agrees to a lower payment. However, one player’s desire is not enough and his decision does not guarantee a deal. A year ago Chelsea paid for Morata € 66 million. The clubs have not yet reached an agreement on this issue.
According to experts, Morata’s decision to leave the London club could be influenced by Chelsea’s plan to buy Lyon attacking midfielder Nabil Fekir.
