Barcelona midfielder Iniesta is expected to confirm his departure from the Camp Nou some time after this weekend's Copa del Rey final. LAFC vs LA Galaxy: Vela vs Zlatan live online, MLS week 25
Last week was not the finest in Andrés Iniesta's career: after a poor display by him and his team-mates, Barcelona suffered a disastrous exit from the Champions League in Rome. He was, unsurprisingly, clearly affected by the ignominious defeat (but was nevertheless one of the few players to face the media post-match).
Iniesta's representatives busy clinching CSL move
Identity of Chinese side remains under wraps...
With Iniesta's camp citing confidentiality clauses, it remains unknown which team are to take the Spain international to the Chinese Super League. As many as four clubs submitted significant financial offers for the World Cup winner, who is expected to sign a three-year contract. The switch is thought to include an agreement for his management team to organise a series of children's football camps, furthering both his and his new employers' global presence.
As part of the package put together to lure Iniesta to the Asian nation, it also understood that his club-to-be are to acquire the Chinese distribution rights to his brand of wines, Bodega Iniesta.
