José Mourinho, trainer of the Tottenham Hotspur, has recognised to be fan of Ivan Rakitic. This summer could have the opportunity to draft him in London
Ivan Rakitic is one of the players of the first team of the FC Barcelona that sound with more intensity to abandon the Barcelona picture of face to the next season. The Croat, that finishes agreement in 2021 and that has lost a lot of leadership during the last season, is considered one of the players with the sufficient poster in Europe as to take out cut, already was with an offer or in a 'change of chromiums'.
We are speaking of a very complete midfield player in every aspect, by what is normal that teams like the Inter of Milan or the Juventus of Turín are interested in him. Besides, with the arrival of José Mourinho to the Tottenham Hotspur -substituted to Mauritius Pochettino to half of season in the bench of the 'spurs'- would be possible that the team londinense also went with everything to by the Croat.
"It is one of the players more infravalorados of the world"
Especially because the technician luso, that before his turn to the benches devoted to test like commentator of television in BeIn Sports, declared in numerous occasions admirer of the game of Rakitic. Mourinho stood out the versatility and the quality of the Barcelona midfield player and, given his situation in the Barça, would be a good portunidad so that it achieved to draft it in the Tottenham.
The Portuguese has clear that, so much to offensive level like defensive, Rakitic is a big footballer. "It is one of the players more infravalorados of the world. It is a fantastic player in all the levels. In his defensive tasks in the right side to compensate to Messi, in possession is fantastic, plays easy, is effective... It wanted to say it before finish, because usually always speak of the big names", said like commentator.
Mourinho even did use of the irony to refer to the appearances that did not finish him to convince of Rakitic and that it had to improve. "It needs to improve in his Instagram, his social networks, because in this moment is not very important. It is not very good in this, is very good in the field", recognised the Portuguese trainer, leaving again clear his admiration to the international Croatian.
Key in the 'operation Ndombélé'
This admiration that feels Mourinho by Rakitic could be key so that the Barça had options of fichar to a player of the Tottenham that interests, and a lot, to the culés: Tanguy Ndombélé. The French midfield player of 23 years does not finish to convince to the trainer luso, by what there would be options of barter if the Frenchman and the Croat approve his change of airs. This yes, Rakitic already warned that it wants to be owner of his destination, by what his course to the club londinense would depend on the capacity of conviction of Mourinho.
