Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu says the club have reached an agreement in principle with Andres Iniesta over a new contract.
Iniesta, 33, is out of contract in June and is reportedly a target for Juventus, who would like to sign him on a free transfer next summer.
When asked about Iniesta’s future, Bartomeu told Mundo Deportivo: “We already have an agreement in principle to renew [his contract] and we hope to finalise it in the coming weeks.
“We are waiting these days to keep talking but Iniesta is a player that we want [to see] retire here and that he retires when he thinks he wants to retire.
“The idea is that he has an indefinite contract where it renews automatically every year until he thinks that he can retire or change.”
