share on:

Andres Iniesta has confirmed that he will play in Japan next season after a social media message, sent on board a private jet heading for the Asian destination.

Andres Iniesta is on the verge of signing for Japanese top-flight side Vissel Kobe, Spanish media said on Wednesday, reporting that he will announce the move officially on Thursday.

Iniesta is set to be presented next weekend where his three year contract will be announced.

Kobe are owned by Hiroshi Mikitani, who is also the chief executive of Barcelona’s main sponsor Rakuten. They have never won Japan’s league championship and are currently placed seventh in the J-League.

If Iniesta completes the move he will join up with former German international Lukas Podolski, who joined Kobe last year.
