Andres Iniesta could join Messi, Alba and Busquets in Saudi Arabia

Andres Iniesta

This summer, the former Barça player will depart Japanese team Vissel Kobe

Andres Iniesta said on Thursday that he has reached an agreement with Vissel Kobe, with whom he had a contract through the end of the year, and will go in the summer. Iniesta, 39, wants to play football at another club where he can reclaim his spot on the field and believes he has the stamina to play at least until he turns 40.

There are already choices available to Iniesta. Football in Saudi Arabia is one of them. After completing the first great incorporation with Cristiano Ronaldo, the Middle Eastern nation continues to entice the greatest football icons to join their tournament.

After declaring he would not be renewing his contract with FC Barcelona, Sergio Busquets made contact with Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal in advance. Leo Messi will receive a big offer from Al-Hilal of close to €500 million per season, and Jordi Alba, who has already indicated that he would leave Barça this summer, will also be pursued by the club.

Four Barça legends might reunite in another league, like the Saudi league, if all the activities go as planned. Anyhow, talks are just getting started, and none of the four have committed to another organization.

For instance, Iniesta has additional possibilities. Inter Miami is interested in signing him for one of them, Major League Soccer. Other Middle Eastern leagues, like Qatar and Abu Dhabi, have also contacted him to participate in their initiatives.

All these teams recognize the worth of having a player of the caliber of Iniesta, who also wants to end his career with the satisfaction of playing frequently, something that did not occur in Kobe this season.

In any scenario, Iniesta will part ways amicably with Vissel and will re-join the Japanese club in their athletic hierarchy after his playing days are finished.
