Iniesta expects to pen new Barca deal

Andres Iniesta says he is confident of agreeing an extension to his Barcelona contract, and that the size of a new deal is not as important as his continuing to feel comfortable at the club.

Andres Iniesta has been at Barcelona since hew as 12.

Tomas: New striker, centre-back
Ball: Spain's ascent
Song not eyeing Arsenal return

Iniesta’s camp last month reportedly rejected an initial offer to extend his current deal, which ends in June 2014, leading to reports that Manchester City and Manchester United could make huge offers to tempt him to England.

Since then the Barca president Sandro Rosell and secretary Toni Freixa have both suggested a bigger offer will put the midfielder just below top earner Lionel Messi on the Catalan club’s salary scale.

The La Masia graduate told El Larguero that money was not an issue for him, he just wanted to be sure the club shared his enthusiasm for continuing the relationship.

“The renewal is not something which concerns me from day to day,” Iniesta said. “I do not care about being in second, third, or fourth place at Barca. I just want to feel the same from the club’s side, as what I feel for Barca.

“There are other things more important than money. If I had the intention to leave I would let my contract run down, but I do not want that. When the moment to renew arrives, it will arrive.

“If two people want to understand each other there is no problem. I do not like to call it ‘negotiations’; Barca is my family. You never sort these things out in just two months.”

In contrast, Iniesta said his long time clubmate Victor Valdes was sure to leave Camp Nou at the end of this season -- despite Rosell claiming [] this week he still hoped to change the goalkeeper’s mind. “It is not a question of that,” Iniesta said. “He took his decision, talking about it anymore is just wasting time. It is his decision and you must respect it. For me, it is a pity, but it is his decision.”

Iniesta was speaking from the Spain camp ahead of this week’s final World Cup qualifiers against Belarus [on Friday] and Georgia [next Tuesday]. Four points from these two games will seal direct qualification for Brazil 2014, and he said he was confident they would get the job done.

“We must make the final step for Brazil,” said the 2010 World Cup final match-winner. “We have it all pretty well in hand, but until it is done we cannot be sure. We are all excited about returning to Brazil, and trying to retain the trophy.”

Atletico Madrid’s Brazil born striker Diego Costa would be welcome in the Spain squad should he get the call-up, Iniesta said. “As a player he is showing practically optimum performances,” he said. “If he comes, he would be another player for us. That is above everything else. A player’s performances are what get him into the national team.”
