The FC Barcelona prepares the straight final of the market of signings of the summer 2019, and on the table there are several very hot cases. The Catalans will treat to do a last attempt to certify the return of Neymar to the Camp nou, but also are slopes of some footballers that could undertake the contrary way and do the cases in the last days of the window estival.

One of the marked names in red in the diary barcelonista is the one of Ivan Rakitic, that has been under the focuses in the last months. His agreement expires in 2021 and there is not margin for a renewal, and although it pretended to obtain an improvement salarial, has accepted to remain and keeps that it does not want to change of airs. The club considers, instead, that given his age -31 years- and his brilliant path, his sale would be an interesting operation, because it would leave a lot of income without altering too much a centre of the field that this year is full.

In these circumstances, his suplencia in the first official commitments of the course has raised suspicions, and more taking into account that it has been a key piece in the plans of Ernesto Valverde since this arrived to the bench. The technician varied his speech and warned that in this campaign anybody had the place ensured, and in spite of that arrived in good form of the holidays, the Croat contested only the second half against the Ahtletic Club and did not play against the Real Betis.

While some sources aim that this could be a measure of pressure of the directive so that the ex of the Seville reconsider his posture, the Juventus treats to take advantage of the situation and do with his services. The 'vecchia signora' is the firmest beau of the runner-up of the world, by the one who also asked the Inter of Milan and the PSG, that would not see with bad eyes include him in a hypothetical agreement by Neymar.

The problem for the 'bianconeri' is that his proposals do not convince to the Barça, that is not by the work to accept a barter. It does a week, the sportive director Fabio Paratici kept a meeting with the culés and glided the possibility to dress to Emre Can or Rodrigo Bentancur of Barcelona. Neither the German neither the Uruguayan have place in the City Condal, by what the answer, for the moment, has been a refusal.

The Barça will have to manage a medullary of dream

If finally the Juve does not attain a pact by Rakitic, the Croat will form part of a medullary of dream, in which it is difficult to choose between players titled and acting. That could be the reason that has left him went in the start suspender belt, since Valverde has begun to do proofs to choose his best options. Has a lot and very well where choose, since I save that there are novelties, the one of Möhlin will coexist with Sergio Busquets, Arthur, Rafinha Alcántara, Carles Aleñá, Sergi Roberto, Frenkie of Jong and Arturo Vidal, that have to deliver the minutes in the three places of the room of machines.
