Valverde: Andreas Iniesta's is not for sale

 Valverde prevents Andreas Iniesta's sale by Barcelona
Barcelona board has seen their decision reversed by their newly appointed coach Ernesto Valverde on the decision to cash in on Andreas Iniesta according to reports in Spain, Cadena SER.

The Barcelona coach has ensured that Barcelona does not cash in on Andreas Iniesta this summer, the coach stepped in and stopped the motion.

I consider Andres to be a very important player for the team and for the club,’ he said.

But before Valverde’s arrival, Iniesta indicated a new contract with Barcelona was far from a certainty.

‘My intention is, at least, to finish the contract that I have and that’s what I want to do,’ the midfielder told RAC1 at the end of May.

‘Beyond that, there are always possibilities. It’s a question of assessing everything. I am not saying if I am going to renew or not.

‘I’ve reached this situation conditioned by how the season has gone, how things have moved and I have learned to assess things.

‘I already said a few weeks ago that the moment I have to leave, it will not end in confrontation between Iniesta and the club. We will always look for what is best for everyone.’

Iniesta has been with the club since his boyhood when he was 12, and currently, he has one year left on his contract and a deal has not been agreed yet.

The playmaker is one of Barcelona greatest player ever he has won virtually all club competition with Barcelona.

However, the board decision to cash in on the player came as a surprise to the manager Valverde as well as the fans who want him to have a deserving farewell like former teammate and captain Xavi Hernandez.

Iniesta played 23 league games last season but he could not register a goal but he was instrumental to Barcelona all through the season.

With this decision, Valverde has won the heart of the fans with even playing a game by preventing the board from selling one of their long serving players as his experience could prove vital for Barcelona who will try to regain their supremacy in Spain and Europe in the coming seasons.
