“I am very happy in Barcelona, it’s perfect for me and my family.”
Ivan Rakitic said those words two days ago in the most sincere way possible and despite the arrival of De Jong in July (and also Rabiot), the Croatian has the full intention to stay in Barcelona according to Marca.
“In Italy, they speak of a possible agreement but the reality is very different. First of all, Rakitic does not want to join an Italian club. As he has repeated on numerous occasions, although not many believed him, his idea is to continue with Barcelona. There were intermediaries that offered him to Inter and the Italian club likes the possibility of getting the Barcelona player. However, official contacts have not been made with either Barca or the player’s legal advisor.”
