The FC Barcelona has several marked names in red in his diary, and one of them is the one of Ivan Rakitic. The one of Möhlin landed in the Camp Nou in 2014 and his performance has been exemplary, but the end of his adventure in the City Condal is blurring more than the necessary. The last tensions between the player and the club have caused that by the way have wasted a lot of football and a good bunch of millions.

The season 2019-20 aims to be the last of the Croatian like culé, since it is the last in which it can him take out performance to his sale. Recently that fulfilled 32 years and still shows a high level, although his decadence has been evident from does some months. The questions anímicas and the restlessness have affected to a star that does not do so much was a safe for all his trainers in the room of machines.

The rumours warn that the crack bothered by some promise without fulfilling, in a renewal that first postponed and finally finish by not arriving. His agreement expires in 2021 and his extension was braked from the beginning, because the sportive managers already had the rejuvenation of the staff like priority and argued that, by the demanded mass salarial, his increase of wage could not assume.

With Ernesto Valverde turned into an usual of the bench, and his poor performances justified them. The injuries and sanctions gave him back the minutes and the arrival of Quique Setién allowed him take air, but in spite of having recovered leadership, has not recovered to a todoterreno that marvelled to the fans.

The Barça has contributed in the devaluation of Rakitic

The doubts of the Barça and his refusal to decant have caused a problem added in the staff, and is that Rakitic has devaluated irremediablemente. It cost to assume the exit of the that had been a pillar in the medullary, but for well or for bad, the election would have to have been much earlier. It does something more than a year spoke of a proposal of the PSG that rondaba the 80 million euros, the past summer priced him in 60 and the Juventus offered 42 in January 2020. Now, with the Seville like main applicant, the slat has gone down until the 20 'kilos'.
