Josep Bartomeu has good news for Barca fans regarding Messi and Iniesta contract extension

According to club president Josep Maria Bartomeu, Barcelona are close to securing the long-term contracts of Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta.

The future of Barca legends Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta has been in doubt in the last few months but the pair now look set to put pen to paper.

Bartomeu has now insisted that Barca fans have nothing to worry about regarding both players.

"Messi? He currently has a four-year Contract. He is the best ever and has been playing for us since he was a little child and we enjoy watching him play because he's unique," he told reporters after Tuesday's Champions League victory over Juventus.

"About the contracts for Messi and Iniesta? The club members can rest easily.

"We have already said Messi's renewal is signed and that he will be a Barca player for as long as he wants, the same with Iniesta.

"Iniesta has extraordinary quality. He was here when Ronaldinho was and now he's with Messi. He's crucial for us, he had a great game."

Iniesta's current deal also runs out in 2018 and at age 33, talk has been rife that he might decide to spend the final years of his career away from the Nou Camp.

Juventus showed interest in signing the Spaniard but Juventus CEO, Giuseppe Marotta believes any deal is now almost impossible.

Speaking to La Sexta, the Juve chief said: "Iniesta is an amazing footballer but he is contracted with Barcelona.

"He is going to sign a contract extension with them as well."

Iniesta has been at Barca since 1996 and made over 450 appearances for the club.
