Pep Guardiola is believed to be keen on luring the midfield maestro over to the Etihad, due to growing speculation that his current assistant, Mikel Arteta, is set to make his managerial bow with Arsenal.
Journalist Sam Elliott, from Yahoo Sport, reports that Iniesta could tempted by the proposed offer when he leaves his beloved Barcelona at the end of the 2017/18 season.
At Barcelona Guardiola and Iniesta enjoyed a stunning four years together, during which they won three La Liga titles, two Champions League trophies, a brace of Copa del Reys, three Supercopa de Espanas, two UEFA Super Cups, and another couple of FIFA Club World Cups.
Iniesta has also won a plethora of other Spanish league titles, domestic cups and European club honours during 22 years at Barcelona, while he also scored the winning goal in the 2010 World Cup Final, and played a key role in Spain’s two European Championships in 2008 and 2012.
The Spaniard was expected to make a move over to Asia to either China or Japan, however Guardiola’s reported interested could well see him venture over to the Premier League instead.
