China back calling for Iniesta

Tianjin Quanjian are hoping to lure Andrés Iniesta to China next season - according to today's edition of Sport. The option of playing in Asia as been recurrent theme in the Barça's skipper's latter years. Last season, Iniesta received a concrete offer to play in the Chinese Super League - a tailor-made offer which would have given the 33-year-old the possibility to play just home games and pick and choose which away games to play. It was alsoa highly lucrative proposal - a reported 35 million euros. The small print in Iniesta's contract states he is allowed to leave and accept such an offer - on the condition he informs the club before 30 April.
