DREAMS of Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta joining the A-League appear to be over after the 34-year-old revealed he was weighing up a move to Japan or China.

Rumours had swirled that lifestyle factors had led to the midfielder preferring a move to Australia, but according to the player’s latest comments, the reality is that he won’t be arriving on our shores.

“Japan, I must take one of the most important decisions after the coming of Fuentealbilla, there are two scenarios: China and Japan, each with its own things, there are still things to value, and in the end you put everything in the balance,” Iniesta told Spanish radio program El Transistor.

“That is the best, it will be done. I will give the answer next week to focus on the World Cup”
