Departing Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta has denied reports that he was offered a deal by Manchester City.It had been suggested that City boss Pep Guardiola was keen to bring the midfielder to the Etihad following his decision to leave Barca. 2 The pair are former team-mates and worked alongside each other when Guardiola was manager at the Nou Camp too.Iniesta drew a line under 22 years at the Catalan club when he signed for Japanese club Vissel Kobe earlier this summer and says he had no contact from City. Iniesta is given instructions by coach Pep Guardiola back in 2012. 2 He told Cadena Cope radio: “I had no offer from City, Guardiola never called me.“I have seen reports in the media that there was contact, but honestly there was no conversation. I was leaving Barca to leave Europe, so that would have made no sense.“I was lucky enough to be at an elite club where I was at my happiest, that makes me tremendously proud, but it was time to undertake another adventure.”You can see all of the confirmed summer transfer window deals in the Premier League here.last_img read more
