Barcelona made attempt to re-sign Andres Iniesta in January

Barcelona made an attempt to re-sign Andres Iniesta last month, it has been revealed.

Sport says Barça were in touch with Vissel Kobe midfielder Iniesta to ask whether he would be open to a return.

The plan was to do this on a short-term loan deal but Vissel weren't keen. Iniesta has two years to run on his deal in Japan, is their club captain and star man.

The Asian Champions League is also about to start.

With questions being asked about Barça's style and it moving away from what made them unique, the club felt Iniesta would help bring it back to what it should be.

But Iniesta wants to continue making history in Kobe and honour his contract. By the time that expires, he'll embark on his career as a football coach.
