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.

While it was mostly down to the injuries, he was made to warm the benches as a part of the rotation policy as well at times which was probably a hint that he had not remained that strong a force at the club anymore.

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.

City is, however, not the only big club in pursuit of Iniesta. Inter Milan is going after him as well and is ready to spend big to acquire him, but, Guardiola is expecting that the strong bonding that he has with the Spanish legend will prove to be helpful in luring him to City.

Guardiola has a number of players on his list including Iniesta whom he is looking to add to the City squad so that City can contend not only for the domestic title, but, also for the continental title.

While City has been a quite a potent force at the domestic level in the last few years, they haven’t been the same at the European level and that is something Guardiola aims to change.
