Andres Iniesta has signed a new contract with Barcelona to keep him at the club until 2018.
Iniesta's previous deal at Camp Nou had been due to expire in June 2015, with rumours suggesting that the Spain international could be set to leave the Catalan club.
Premier League side Manchester United had been linked with a move for the 29-year-old, who has spent his entire career with Barca.
But Iniesta has now put an end to the speculation by penning a renewed deal with Gerardo Martino's side.
The midfielder has enjoyed an illustrious career with Barcelona since breaking into the first team in 2002, helping the club to six La Liga titles and three UEFA Champions League crowns.
Iniesta has clinched a total of 21 major trophies at Barca, although arguably his greatest achievement came in 2010, when he scored the only goal in the FIFA World Cup final, the first time Spain have won the tournament.
The playmaker has also won the UEFA European Championships on two occasions with Spain and will hope to aid Vicente del Bosque's men in their defence of the World Cup at next year's tournament in Brazil.
Iniesta has made over 450 appearances for Barcelona, scoring 48 goals in all competitions.
