Chinese Super League outfit Tianjin Quanjian has joined the list of teams vying to secure the services of Barcelona star Andres Iniesta, but their offer was likely the most unusual bid any club have received.
The Chinese club is willing to get Iniesta’s signature with a tempting two million bottles of wine purchase from Iniesta’s vineyard (Bodega) on the off that he signs for them.
Iniesta has been linked with a move in the summer, as January transfer import Philippe Coutinho seems, by all accounts, to be the midfielder’s replacement, and has also been rumored to be keen on getting a reunion with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
The Blaugrana‘s skipper is also wanted by sides in the Chinese Super League, and Tianjin is the most recent club after the 33-year old midfielder.
As indicated by top media publication ‘The Sun’, the Chinese club are reportedly willing to offer the midfielder an amazing salary of £30million, but the second piece of their offer is considerably even more stunning.
Evidently, Tianjin have offered to purchase two million bottles of wine from the ‘Bodega Iniesta’, Iniesta’s wine vineyard that started delivering in 2010. His vineyard, which is situated in eastern Spain, offers its wine across Europe and was launched in England in 2016.
Regardless of whether Iniesta is more intrigued by the bizarre offer of selling two million bottles wine or a reunion with Pep Guardiola remains unknown, in spite of the fact that it is more-than-possible that Iniesta will stay at Camp Nou, given that he signed a ‘lifetime’ contract with the club a year ago.
