After a turbulent summer in Barcelona, the Blaugrana are back on course and leading La Liga.

The Catalan giants confirmed Andres Iniesta's cnew deal on Friday, saying will stay at the club for the rest of his career.

The sale of Neymar in August, couple with the failure to bring in top targets like Marco Verratti and Philippe Coutinho, left fans frustrated.

Andres Iniesta is an iconic figure in the history of Spanish football.

On the sporting side, however, things have been good.

Meanwhile, the threat of a censure motion has come and gone, as Benedito failed to secure sufficient signatures in order to force fresh elections.

While he picked up an injury last time out against Las Palmas, Iniesta believes he has enjoyed a new lease of life after a hard 2016-17.

In the first half of its current fiscal year, turnover grew 3.3 %, mainly thanks to advantageous exchange rate fluctuations. Cost savings helped to push up the group operating margin to 2.7 percent from 2.2 percent previous year .

"I see it the way it is", he said. "I'll be the first to know when it's over". Basically, it seems that Iniesta will simply remain at the club until he chooses to retire, but what control the head coach or club chiefs will have over that decision is very uncertain.

At the start of the season Iniesta felt unsure of the direction the club was going in under Bartomeu's and he was also reluctant to sign a lucrative new deal and then not be able to produce for the team on the pitch.

Iniesta added more uncertainty to the saga last month after revealing that he was yet to make a decision - only days after Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu had claimed that the club had reached an agreement in principle for the player to commit his long-term future to the Nou Camp.

Along with five-time World Player of the Year Lionel Messi, Iniesta is Barca's most decorated player of all-time having won 30 trophies at club level, including eight LaLiga titles and four Champions Leagues.

"The club wants Leo to be here, he wants to be here. Hopefully, this story never ends!"

Latest reports from the Daily Express, though, suggest that Barcelona are also interested in signing the creative midfielder.
