Spain's World Cup Hero -- Flirting with Hollywood

The dude who banged that awesome World Cup-winning goal for Spain is in talks to make a huge move off the field ... a move that could land the guy in the movies.

TMZ has learned Andres Iniesta is currently in Italy meeting with bad ass real estate tycoon Tom Barrack ... the guy who's plotting to buy Miramax with Rob Lowe.

We're told Barrack -- who also owns French soccer team Paris Saint-Germain -- is hoping to get Iniesta over to his squad ... but he also has bigger plans for the soccer stud.

Sources close to Barrack tell TMZ, "The idea is [Iniesta] could be talent for upcoming scripts, movies, whatever. We aren't ruling any ideas out."

The Dude????? WTF thats just wrong he is The Best Player in WOrld. I am Cule (Barcelona Fan) and he told the Media that he wants to retire in Barcelona he is not a Money Guy believe me he is not a basketball player who just want big cars and big houses. Soccer is passion is more than a Sport is a live and anyway he is mking Big Money in Barcelona where his Family lives.

Iniesta is one of the humblest sports stars in the world, he is a great guy and will never leave Barcelona. He does not like to be in the spot light, and is actually a very shy guy. More sports stars need to look to Andres.
