Iniesta Signs new contract, and it's FOR LIFE !


It also shows that the club's commitment to it's second highest appearance maker (639, bettered only by Xavi Hernandez's 767) is total. Saying: 'I don't usually publicly evaluate situations as complex but these are exceptional circumstances and I am sure of one thing: we should talk before we do ourselves harm.

The Spain midfielder reached an agreement with Barca for a new "lifetime" deal at the club on Friday, extending his lengthy association with the Catalan giants having joined in 1996.

Iniesta's Barca and Spain team-mate Gerard Pique has been a controversial figure of late, with the defender attracting jeers from supporters at a recent worldwide training session for his support of the Catalan independence referendum. Basically, it seems that Iniesta will simply remain at the club until he chooses to retire, but what control the head coach or club chiefs will have over that decision is very uncertain.

"Andrés Iniesta signed a lifetime contract with FC Barcelona on Friday, in a deal that will keep him at the Club for the rest of his career", FC Barcelona said in a statement.

A product of Barcelona academy, Iniesta has gone on to become one of the best midfielders in the world.

Iniesta signed the new contract at the team's Camp Nou Stadium and was given a team shirt with the words "Iniesta forever".

"I will be here as long as my body, mind and all I have to give is enough", he added. "It's where I have grown and developed", Iniesta said at a press conference after signing the contract.

"This is the club where I grew up and evolved and I feel privileged to be its captain".

Barcelona will now be hoping for Lionel Messi follow in Iniesta's footsteps in the near future with the Argentine's contract set to expire at the end of the season. "I'll be the first to know when it's over".

Barcelona are keen to manage their captain's minutes to prolong his impact on the first team, although the evergreen Iniesta has still started six of their seven LaLiga games this season.
