Barcelona have reached an agreement with Andres Iniesta over a new contract until the summer of 2018, the club’s official website revealed on Thursday.The attacking midfielder’s previous deal was due to expire in June 2015 and a number of clubs were closely monitoring the 29-year-old’s situation at Camp Nou.Nevertheless, Iniesta has now ended all speculation about his future by agreeing a three-year extension to his existing contract.Iniesta came through the ranks of the Barcelona youth academy and has made 479 official appearances for the Blaugrana since making his first-team debut under then head coach Louis van Gaal in 2002-03, scoring 48 goals in the process.The Spain international has won 21 trophies during his time at Barca so far, including six La Liga titles and three Champions League trophies. Iniesta will sign the deal on Monday to become the fifth Barcelona player to agree a new contract until 2018 after Sergio Busquets, Cristian Tello, Lionel Messi and Neymar.
“Clearly everyone knows that we are there and especially when the Arsenal manager speaks so clearly like he did, there is no point in trying to hide or deny,” Mourinho said.“But [it is] not done, not done at all. In this moment Mkhitaryan our player, Sanchez is an Arsenal player. With a match tomorrow, I want to switch off and focus on what is the most important thing.”Mkhitaryan arrived at United’s Carrington training ground as normal on Friday morning but Mourinho confirmed the Armenian will not be involved against Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday.Mourinho said: “[He is] not selected. But in very good condition, training really well.”Sky Sports News understands an agreement is yet to be reached between all parties in the deal, including some of the representatives attached to it.Arsenal are also discussing a move for another player, believed to be Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.Mourinho, though, said his involvement in the transfer ended when he told the club he wanted to sign Sanchez.“Sometimes people think transfers involve the managers a lot in the negotiations,” he said. “I think it depends a lot on the profile of the club, the way we establish our jobs and in my case when it goes to the table of negotiations I like to be out.“I’m out. I will just be calmly waiting for news. No more than that.”Asked what is holding up the deal, Mourinho said: “I don’t know. My involvement in the situation is just to say the reasons why I would like to have the player and no more than that. I’m out.”-By Sky Sports0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is out of contract at the end of the seasonMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Jan 19- Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed talks are ongoing over a swap deal involving Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan with Arsenal, but says a deal is “not done” yet.Mourinho said he is awaiting news on the transfer but insisted he is “out” of the negotiations.
