The Manchester City fans in the Transfer Tavern are absolutely delighted by recent news which suggests Andres Iniesta could be set for a sensational reunion with Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium next season.
With Mikel Arteta looking increasingly likely to succeed Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium, City will presumably scout the market for a potential replacement this summer, and according to Yahoo Sport, the club are hoping to bring Andres Iniesta to the club.
After spending the entirety of his career with the Catalan giants in which he has won 9 La Liga titles and 4 Champions League trophies, Iniesta is set to embark on a new challenge this summer at the age of 34.
According to the report, Iniesta (valued at £18 million by Transfermarkt) would agree to join the Citizens in a player-coach role and, considering his past history with Guardiola and City’s success in recent years, the proposed deal seems perfectly plausible under the circumstances.
Naturally, the City supporters on Twitter were absolutely delighted by the reports and the vast majority are hoping that Iniesta will eventually undertake an unconventional role with the club.
A potential deal is likely to rest upon the future of Mikel Arteta, so the Citizens faithful will no doubt be keeping a close eye on developments at Arsenal in the coming days.
Here’s what the City fans have had to say about Iniesta’s potential arrival of Twitter…
