Juventus are eyeing an incredible move for Andres Iniesta.
The Barcelona star has just one year to run on his Nou Camp contract but has yet to agree terms on a new deal.
And, according to reports in Italy, the Old Lady are ready to pounce should the talks over an extension stall.
Iniesta, 33, has spent his whole career with Los Cules, winning eight La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues.
Barca chiefs are actively looking for a long-term replacement for the Spain international, with Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho high on their wishlist.
And the club are treating Lionel Messi’s contract renewal with more importance.
But Juventus boss Max Allegri still views Iniesta as the best midfielder in the world.
And the Italian champions believe they can lure him to Serie A – like they did with Dani Alves last summer.
The Brazilian right-back has been a revelation in Italy this season with outgoing Barca boss Luis Enrique criticising boardroom figures for letting him go for free.
