Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta brought an end to his life long affiliation with Barcelona on Sunday, and Liverpool fans have were quick to urge their club to sign the 34-year-old former World Cup winner this summer.
The Spaniard confirmed that he would be leaving the Camp Nou last month, bringing an end to his 22-year stay at the Catalan club. The midfielder made an emotional final appearance in his side’s 1-0 final day victory over Real Sociedad on the weekend.
Iniesta had originally hinted at a move away from Europe with reports last month suggesting that a move to the Chinese Super League was near completion. However the move failed to materialise, leading to Liverpool fans questioning why their club isn’t in for the veteran midfielder.
