Andres Iniesta is set to complete a move to China in the summer, with two million bottles of wine a key part of the deal, according to reports in Spain.
The Barcelona icon, 33, is expected to make an official announcement over his future after this weekend’s Copa del Rey final.
For some time, the choice has been between staying with the club he’s been at for his entire career, or opting for a move to the Far East.
And Marca report he has already decided to join an unnamed Chinese Super League club — after promises he would sell around two million bottles of wine there.
Bodega Iniesta started in 2010, and sells wines from the tiny region of Fuentealbilla, which is where the Spain legend was born, with Corazon Loco his most famous label.
It is reported that his Barcelona team-mates are aware of his decision, and it needs to be made official before April 30.
Iniesta is one of the greatest footballers of his generation, and has been at the Nou Camp his entire career, since making his debut in 2002.
At international level, he is equally as important for Spain and famously scored the goal which won the 2010 World Cup.
However, his age has been showing in recent weeks, and it is thought Philippe Coutinho was brought in as a long-term replacement.
Iniesta was heavily criticised for his performance against Roma, which saw Barcelona crash out of the Champions League.
