Former Barcelona Icon Andres Iniesta Set to Join Emirates Club in UAE

Former Barcelona star Andres Iniesta is reportedly set to sign a one-year contract with Emirates Club in the Adnoc Pro League.

Wearing an Emirates Club scarf, Andres Iniesta, aged 39, was captured on video arriving at the club with his family. He had discussions with officials, and in a video shared on the team's social media platforms on Monday night, he could be seen receiving flowers from children.

According to reports, the former Spain international has agreed on a one-year contract with the option of a one-year extension and is expected to be officially announced as an Emirates Club player on Tuesday.

Securing Iniesta's transfer to Emirates Club is a significant achievement for the Ras Al Khaimah team. This comes after reports indicated that the iconic midfielder declined an opportunity to join Inter Miami, where he could have reunited with his former Barcelona teammates Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets, and Jordi Alba.

Iniesta, recognized as one of the most exceptional midfielders of his era, has remained without a club since the beginning of July. He ended his five-year term with the Japanese team Vissel Kobe at that time.

He spent most of his career at Barcelona having graduated from their famed La Masia academy, making 674 appearances for the Barca first team and winning 22 major trophies, including nine La Liga titles, six Copa del Reys, four Champions Leagues, and three Fifa Club World Cups.
