Ivan Rakitic has turned into one of the pillars of the FC Barcelona in the last polish. The Croat was indisputable for Luis Enrique and, until the moment, also has been it for Ernesto Valverde. In spite of this, this summer has spoken a lot of his possible course of the team barcelonista. But the player has refused at all times go out of the Camp Nou because it wants to follow triumphing in the Barça.

But the 'Txingurri' did not take in resorting to the Croatian and took him out in the rest. Rakitic, in spite of the years and in spite of the rumours, will keep on being important a campaign more in the Camp Nou. It has been one of the best of the pre-season and the most likely is that it go back to the titularity against the Betis.

Rakitic Will be able to have more rest this year

Unlike other years, this course Valverde will be able to give him the rest that needs to the ex sevillista. Aleñá, Arturo Vidal and Arthur aim to be the acting midfield players, but will have a lot of minutes so that Rakitic and Busquets can rest and arrive well to the final stretch of season.

Also Frenkie of Jong will be of help, since it can play so much in the place of Busquets as in the one of the Balkan. The Dutch seems that it will be to title again in front of the Betis, but would play of interior and no of mediocentro defensive as against the Athletic. The ex of the Ajax has qualities that go him to come very well to the midfield culé and to the own Rakitic, to the that will download of work.
