“I don’t rule anything out. It happened with Dani - age is [just] a number. They’re two great players.

"I can’t predict what will happen tomorrow, they’re still playing and contracted to other clubs.

"You never know what happens in life."

Messi was forced to leave the Camp Nou last summer and is currently playing for

Paris Saint-Germain

. Iniesta, who played for Barcelona between 2002 and 2018, moved to Japan and plays for

Vissel Kobe

. Asked about his possible return to Barca, Iniesta said:

"I don’t know what will happen in the future, I would love in some moment of my life to return to Barca. I don’t know in what capacity.

“To return to Barca, to my home, to be able to continue helping in one way or another, but nobody knows the future."
