Former Valencia star Gaizka Mendieta doubts Manchester United will prise Andres Iniesta away from Barcelona.

United are being linked with Iniesta in today's press.

"You can never say never, but I think Iniesta is happy to be at Barcelona," Middlesbrough hero Mendieta told talkSPORT.

"Tata Martino is imposing this rotation, which I think we all agree they all needed, but players never like. I'm sure there will be a point where Iniesta and Barcelona will reach agreement.

"The fact they say there is no rush in the negotiations means they seem happy to wait and see what happens.

"Barcelona is going great. Maybe the style of football is not what it was like years ago, but they are still winning."
