A couple of days after Manchester United were linked with a double move for Real Madrid duo Angel Di Maria and Sami Khedira, the English Premier League champions are reportedly looking at a player who has starred for Real's biggest rivals Barcelona for several years.
United are looking at the possibility of signing Andres Iniesta in the January transfer window, according to the Daily Mail.
Iniesta is yet to agree a new contract with Barca and there have been suggestions that the Spanish international has become disillusioned with the lack of effort in offering a new deal.
The report suggests, David Moyes is extremely keen on Iniesta and could go in with a bid in the January transfer window if he receives encouragement.
Moyes and United already fell flat on their faces after attempting to bring in Cesc Fabregas in the summer, and the manager will be extremely wary of suffering another embarrassment.
Therefore Moyes and chief executive Ed Woodward is likely to tread on this possibility, if true of course, extremely lightly and with great caution.
Iniesta, one of the best footballers in the world and instrumental in Barcelona's dominant years, has reportedly become increasingly disillusioned following Pep Guardiola's departure and could seriously consider a move abroad.
The report also suggests Iniesta is far from happy at the firing of physio Emili Ricart, who has helped the 29-year-old recover from several injuries in the past.
There has been no official word from either player or club that there is a problem in renewing the Iniesta's contract, which currently runs until 2015.
The likelihood that Iniesta will leave Barcelona, a club he joined in 1996, is extremely low and the inevitable announcement of a new contract being signed is surely to be expected soon.
Moyes has been left frustrated in his attempts to bring in a quality midfielder, and of course, they don't come much better than Iniesta.
If by the most unbelievable of chances Iniesta does become available, then United will do well to go all out in signing the playmaker.
Just don't put your house on it though.
