President Sandro Rosell has announced that Andres Iniesta has agreed to sign a new contract that will keep him at Barcelona until June 2018. Speaking at the club's Christmas lunch for journalists, Rosell said: "We can confirm the new contract, and it is part of our project to strengthen the first team, which Guardiola took to the top, Tito Vilanova maintained at the top and Martino has consolidated at the top. "We have shaken on it but that's no longer enough. We will wrap it up next Monday afternoon. He will sign until 2018 and then after that we will take it on a year-by-year basis, depending on how often he is playing and his performances on the pitch. "We're very happy about his renewal; it's a great Christmas present for everyone connected with Barcelona."
