A CHINESE Super League football team has offered to buy six million bottles of wine to seal a deal with Spanish player Andres Iniesta.

Chongqing Dangdai Lifan have reportedly offered the Barcelona centre midfielder an €80 million deal over three years.

But to sweeten the deal, they also vowed to order six million bottles of wine from Iniesta’s cellar, worth six euros each – amounting to €36 million.

It means the total deal would be worth €116 million.

Iniesta said: “This is my last season here. I know what it means to demand what it means to play here year after year.

“There are still things to be sorted. I have said I will never play against Barca, so I won’t play in Europe. Barca has given me everything.”
