INIESTA: BARCA WILL HAVE A GREAT SEASON THIS CAMPAIGN

A lot of eyes have been on Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona and there have been questions asked about whether they can manage to survive without their club legend Lionel Messi after the Argentina international star left the club this summer.

Messi left Barca this summer under unexpected and controversial circumstances, one of them being the fact that Barca are currently in a difficult financial situation.

INIESTA SAYS HE ALWAYS KNEW MESSI WOULD STAY AT BARCA

There is quite some excitement among Barcelona fans following the confirmation that their superstar attacker Lionel Messi would finally be signing a new contract at the club.

Messi's future was very much up in the air in the last couple of months as he continued to drop major hints that he wanted to leave the Camp Nou and try out another challenge in some other club.

INIESTA: I'M STILL ENJOYING MY FOOTBALL FOR NOW

Former Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta has insisted that he is still enjoying the beautiful game of football even though a lot of people have been asking him when he will be retiring from the sport.

Iniesta Reveals That Neymar Still Desires To Play With Messi

Former Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta has revealed that it remains a desire for Neymar to play with Lionel Messi, amid the Argentine superstar being linked with a move away from the Camp Nou.

Barcelona presidential candidate says he won’t lure Neymar to Barcelona

Barcelona’s leading president candidate Victor Font says it is highly unlikely that Neymar will make the comeback to the Catalan giants. The Brazil international made the surprise move for Paris Saint-Germain in a world-record deal in the summer of 2017 with the view to enhancing his prospects of winning the Ballon d’Or.

So far, that has not been the case for the Brazilian and there has been the talk of him returning to the Camp Nou in the near future. Of late, a number of presidential candidates have talked about possible big-names signings for the Blaugrana, but Font believes the club should be realistic and look at signing young players, who can develop into world-beaters in the long run.

WEST HAM WANT TO SIGN DEFENDER WHO SHARES AGENTS WITH INIESTA

According to Spanish newspaper outlet Mundo Deportivo, Premier League club, West Ham United have begun talks and are ready to go all out to secure the signing of Barcelona defender Junior Firpo. The Hammers were said to be interested in the young defender even before the Winter transfer window opened but it's looking like they are intensifying their interest and want to pick up from where they left off.


They have now followed up by initiating talks with the 24-year-old who has been seen as a perfect buyable player in this window to provide squad depth and strength. West Ham coach David Moyes has given his defender Aaron Cresswell a new role in the team by slotting him into a three-man central defence system while also losing Arthur Masuaku to a long-term injury.

Steven Gerrard and Neil Lennon want to sign Manchester United player Jesse Lingard, per reports. The report claims that both the Rangers and Celtic managers want to add Lingard to their squads when the January transfer window opens for business next month.


Lingard has once been compared to Spanish legend Andres Iniesta by his former coach Rene Meulensteen. The former Manchester United coach said some years back that Lingard had top qualities and abilities that made him the English version of Barcelona's great Iniesta.
