The case Ivan Rakitic follows very open. To day of today, the FC Barcelona does not have foreseen to do any movement to treat to renew to the Croatian midfield player, that does months that asks an increase salarial. The tremendo cost of the club in signings and other renewals complicates the fact to prolong his agreement, that already was reviewed in 2017.

In spite of this situation, Rakitic seems to have clear that it wants to remain in the FC Barcelona another season more. The Croatian midfield player is entirely safe that has place in the team and that his conditions put him above some of his mates in the fierce competition by the three places of the medullary.

Analysing the situation, it is necessary to take into account that the Croat will have to litigate by a place with a lot of players of level, because of the 'overbooking' of the medullary. The past season, did it with Arthur Melo, Arturo Vidal and Carles Aleñá, but this season, will have more competition: the recently arrived Frenkie of Jong; Sergi Roberto, that will advance his position; Rafinha, recovered of his injury; and even Riqui Puig, that follows aiming ways.

To all this it is necessary to add the enigmatic words that Ernesto Valverde has pronounced this week when they have asked after him the figure of the Croatian midfield player. "Rakitic Is an important player, has been it. I do not know if it will be it this season and will have to win it", commented the Txingurri, giving a message that surprised been due to the indispensable that has been always Rakitic for him.

The PSG almost convinced to Rakitic

It will be necessary to expect therefore to know the paper that will have in the team. By the moment, his posture seems clear regarding his plans of future: it wants to remain in the Barça, win the place and follow harvesting titles. A thought that has varied in Rakitic with regard to the past summer, when Paris Saint-Germain offered him a capital sum of money.

The French team offered 90 million euros by him to the Barcelona. A figure that tempted a lot to the Barcelona club for selling, although Ernesto Valverde called to the own Croatian player to convince him to stop the operation. And it achieved it, since Rakitic saw that the Camp Nou is the best place in which it could be. Little they have to see the doubts that had the Croat in 2018 with the few that has now.
