Andres Iniesta has revealed that he would like to extend his stay at Barcelona if they recognise his importance to the team.
“I have never asked the club for anything – it’s the club that get in contact with me and then, when an agreement is reached, I’ll do it,” Iniesta told when quizzed about a new contract.
“I don’t know if I’ll sign an improved deal in the next few days, but I believe it’s particularly good that the club values its players, not only those who have come from elsewhere.
“If they give me an improvement, it would be welcome. The most important thing is that the club knows what I have done for them. Both parties must be in agreement, but I don’t think there will be any problems.”
Iniesta played through an injury to take part in last year’s Champions League final.
The 25-year-old is one of a handful of players currently involved in contract talks. Carles Puyol and Rafael Marquez are being urged to sign new deals, while Pep Guardiola is waiting to see the outcome of the next set of presidential elections before putting pen to paper on a contract extension.
