Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta could reportedly miss final El Clasico on Sunday.

The 33-year-old was unable to take part in Blaugrana training session on Thursday due to a calf problem seeing the Spain international complete "specific work" away from the first team squad as the club confirmed.

Real Madrid defender set to miss El-Clasico

Iniesta will have one last chance to play against Real Madrid this weekend before the midfielder ends his 22-year-old spell at Camp Nou at the end of the season.

According to a number of reports in Spain, Barcelona captain still hopeful of being fit for the clash against Los Blancos but his absence from Thursday's training session has caused concern.

Barcelona wrapped up the La Liga title by beating Deportivo La Coruna last weekend, while Real Madrid are currently battling Atletico Madrid for second position in the table.

Iniesta has been tipped to move to the Chinese Super League and is rumoured to have been offered a sizeable contract from Chongqing Dangdai Lifan.
