Ivan Rakitic carried almost all the season being acting usual in the alignments of Ernesto Valverde, but the 'Txingurri' decided to concede him the titularity this past Wednesday in one of the most important parties of the last months, the crash in front of the Borussia Dortmund in the Camp Nou. The Croatian midfield player, as it was to expect, surrendered to a big level and opened again the debate around his future.

From 'FCBN', in this sense, move a new survey to our readers in which we ask about the future of the '4' Barcelona. It would owe the FC Barcelona replantearse his exit in January of 2020? We want to know the posture of the barcelonismo, although we know that in general lines the fans culés save a special affection to Rakitic.

THE POLL Should Barça think twice the transfer of Rakitic in January?

Since it gave beginning the season 2019-20, to all surprised us that Rakitic was acting and that, in some parties, even did not go summoned. The footballer has gone appearing of punctual form from the bench, and to date so only has had of two titularities this campaign. Whenever it has touched him dress of short has fulfilled to big level, and in the Barça value his professionalism above all else.

In this sense, is necessary to give off of him in winter? Or it could be an unnecessary risk to half of the season? We remember that, although Busquets and Frenkie of Jong are fixed in the alignments, Arthur is going through some weeks of ostracism under the control of Valverde. Probably something was not him liking to the 'Txingurri', and was imposing a particular punishment to the Brazilian.

In this coyuntura, and taking into account that Carles Aleñá is likely that also do the cases in January, traspasar to Rakitic would leave to Arturo Vidal, Arthur, Busquets and Of Jong like midfield players of the staff, without explaining to Sergi Roberto that another campaign more is being used more than right side that of interior, his theoretically natural position.

Riqui Puig could benefit indirectly

The panorama could allow that Riqui Puig had more leadership with the first team, although also there are rumours on his future cession. In this coyuntura, what is clear is that the Barça will give off of Rakitic, Aleñá and Riqui Puig at the same time.

Any of them will continue, although in the case of the Croatian the thing is more complicated. The Barça wishes to take out a profit of several tens of million euros in 2020, and the traspaso of Rakitic is an opportunity that the directive of Bartomeu hardly will leave to escape. But... It has to be now? Or better in summer? A lot of questions in the air for the barcelonismo.
