  • Andres Iniesta has spent 16 years at Barcelona

Iniesta (right) said last week he has received an offer to play in China and must decide by the end of April whether he takes it or remains at the Nou Camp.

Andres Iniesta has been urged to stay at Barcelona by team-mate Marc-Andre ter Stegen, days after the midfielder admitted he was considering a move to China.

"It's a personal decision and everyone hopes he stays at Barca because he's a great person", Ter Stegen said.

Iniesta returned from a hamstring injury to help Barca to a 3-0 win over Chelsea at Camp Nou on Wednesday, with Lionel Messi's brace inspiring a 4-1 aggregate triumph in the last-16 tie. "We are thinking about the present and he'll make the decision".

"I hope he stays but he's the only one that knows".

Iniesta signed a "lifetime contract" earlier this season which reportedly includes a clause enabling him to leave for a club of lesser stature. He was greeted with chants of "Iniesta please stay" when he replaced Ousmane Dembele shortly after the hour mark.

"We all want to have Andres Iniesta forever, but we'll see what happens", Valverde told Sport. "We know what a great person he is, how important he is to the club and we have to try and keep him here".

"Iniesta, Iniesta"' and 'We love you, Iniesta stay" were the chants that echoed around the Camp Nou as he came on and was applauded on nearly every touch.

Barcelona remain on course for the treble with an eight-point lead over Atletico Madrid in the Spanish top flight, a Copa del Rey final against Sevilla and another Champions League quarter-final appearance.
