The news of the day (apart of Icardi’s medical revealing no injury) is Ivan Rakitic has said yes to Inter, wanting to end his career in Italy.
The Gazzetta dello Sport talks about the advanced negotiations between Inter and Barcelona, so much so that we are at the point of discussing payment method.
Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky, however, is taking a more cautious approach.
“According to our information, similar to what happened last summer, Rakitic was offered to Inter but a real negotiation with Barcelona has not started. So, Inter do not know at the moment if Barcelona want to sell the player and under what conditions. It is clear, however, that signing a player like Rakitic at certain doable conditions would present an excellent opportunity for the Nerazzurri.”
