The Spain international still has two years to run on his current contract with the Catalans but is hoping to sign an extension that wil take him right up to the end of his playing days.
"My idea is to continue and retire at Barca," Iniesta told El Mundo Deportivo. "I hope it can be so.
"I hope there aren't any complications in this regard. But when two parties want the same thing, there usually aren't any problems. In that sense, I am very calm."
Iniesta is on international duty with Spain and freely admits that he is relishing playing in midfield, rather than more forward in the attack.
"Yes, I feel more comfortable because that's my natural position,” Iniesta said. “It is no secret for me to say that.
“I have always said that, and it has always been that way. But, of course, there are situations where I have to play in another position, and it's important that I feel at ease there."
Iniesta's play in the midfield has him among the finalists for the Confederations Cup's Golden Ball, along with new club teammate Neymar, Andrea Pirlo, Paulinho, Luis Suarez and Sergio Ramos. He'll have a chance to state his case for the award Sunday when Spain meets Brazil in the final.
