Pep Guardiola will make Andres Iniesta at the Etihad Stadium

Pep Guardiola is eager to land Andres Iniesta at the Etihad Stadium to beef up the Sky Blues with some valuable experience.


Iniesta has been a one-club Footballer so far, but, now, he is said to be willing to look for other opportunities after serving Barcelona for almost one and a half decades.

The playmaker had a pretty dismal previous season with Barca as he didn’t feature in even 15 top tier games.

Iniesta and Guardiola are a duo which earned a lot of success together for the Catalan giants as captain and head coach respectively.

They are believed to have a strong bonding between each other and the reports suggest that they have already had discussions about a potential City deal. Read more »
