Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta receives stunning foreign (non-China) offer

Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta has a stunning offer on the table to move abroad - and it's not from China.

The 32 year-old midfielder is inside the final 18 months of his current deal and has postponed new contract talks until the end of this season.

Don Balon says New York City FC have come forward and made a stunning offer to the Spain international. The proposal is effectively a 'blank cheque' to quit Barca for MLS.

New York City are part-owned by Manchester City and overseen by former Barca director Ferran Soriano.

And the Blaugrana connection doesn't end there, with Iniesta's good friend David Villa also leading the NYCFC attack.

Iniesta rejected a €33 million-a-year contract offer from China last month.
