No particular Aussie clubs have been connected with a move for the 33-year-old, who has been at Barcelona since he was 12 and won 31 trophies in the process.

"I've come across him two or three times and he is a charming, very reserved man and I like players who can do everything on the field but are that calm off it".

The four-time Champions League victor was expected to complete his move to Chongqing but their president Jiang Lizhang denied that Iniesta's arrival is imminent.
