Andres Iniesta 'not at war with Barcelona over new deal'

Andres Iniesta insists that he is 'not at war' with Barcelona over a new deal amid uncertainty surrounding the player's future at the club.

Andres Iniesta has spoken out about the uncertainty surrounding his Barcelona future, insisting that he is not at war with the club over a new deal.

It is thought that Barcelona are keen to offer the midfielder a new contract, but reports have suggested Iniesta might be looking towards the likes of Paris Saint-Germain when his current deal runs out in 2015.

"There is nothing strange or any war going on between Barca and Iniesta. The club wants me here and I want to stay here," Iniesta said at a press conference.

"I have said many times that my aim is to retire here and the club wants the same. We all want to reach an agreement. This has nothing to do with money or whether I am the second, third, fourth or fifth best paid player. What motivates me is knowing that I have some good years ahead in which I can keep improving and growing as a player."

Barcelona have started their La Liga campaign in fine form, having won all six of their matches so far.
