Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta spoke about his future on Saturday amid speculation he will leave for the Chinese Super League in the summer.
The 33-year-old said he has already made his decision but is not ready to reveal his intentions, according to Sport:
"I know what I will do. When I have to say it, I will say it. First to the club, then the coach, then everyone else. Anyone can take these words any way they wish.
"I have the love and respect of the fans now and forever. It's not something that will make me change my mind. I'm grateful. They have been watching me for many years.
"It's my home, today I'll remember the support they have given me since the start. They are conscious that it was a difficult game and their support was fundamental."
Despite approaching the end of his career, Iniesta has made 37 appearances in all competitions this term.
The midfielder signed a lifetime contract with Barcelona in October 2017. However, he has said he has an offer from a Chinese club and must make a decision by the end of April, per Rik Sharma of Reuters (h/t the Daily Mail).
The midfielder was part of the Barcelona side knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by Roma on Tuesday, putting an end to their dreams of winning the treble.
The midfielder said after the defeat he may have played his last Champions League game for Barcelona, according to Spanish football correspondent Tom Allnutt:
Barcelona responded to that loss with a 2-1 win over Valencia in La Liga on Saturday to close in on the title. The fans in the Camp Nou chanted for Iniesta to stay but may not get their wish, per ESPN FC's Samuel Marsden:
The signs are pointing to an Iniesta exit, which could mean an announcement will be made before the end of April. Iniesta could finish the season winning a league-and-cup double, which would be a fitting way for the club legend to bow out.
