The situation of Ivan Rakitic follows surprising to all and sundry. The Croatian midfield player was one of the most used players by Ernesto Valverde in the two first seasons of the Txingurri and tambén was it before the arrival of the technician extremeño, when Luis Enrique was the tenant of the bench culé. Now, however, it has turned into an acting usual.

Of the nine parties that has contested the FC Barcelona in the present course, Rakitic only has been headline in one (the one of The Cármenes in front of the Granada, with a deplorable party of all the team) and played the second complete part against the Athletic Club. In important parties like the one of the Inter or the one of Villarreal, not even appeared, what corroborates his delicate situation.

By the moment, Rakitic holds the storm with professionalism and patience and, at least until it open the market of traspasos wintry, will have to have it. The competition in the centre of the field is total and players like Arthur, Frenkie of Jong, Sergio Busquets or Sergi Roberto carry all the leadership. Thus, maybe to the Croat now touch him follow the example of Arturo Vidal that follows adding.

The Chilean, that also has lost leadership this course, knew to expect his moment and against the Inter of Milan had a decisive paper to trace back. It is true that the continuous suplencias have more impact in Rakitic, that came to be indisputable, but the Croat does not have to wane. Valverde Does not be used to to marry with anybody and anytime the situation of the ex sevillista can change.

By the moment, touches him hold, as him sucede to Carles Aleñá. Both expected to have a much more leading paper to starts of season, but have fallen in the ostracism. Valverde Has a lot of players in his position and for the moment the Croat and the Catalan are the most affected by the excess of effective.

Possible exit in January?

When it spoke that Rakitic could go in in the 'operation Neymar', the Croat felt hurt and stuck to a place that always thought that it belonged him. Nevertheless, the feeling of ninguneo goes growing and maybe in January pacte his exit. Teams like the Manchester United or the Juventus would be loved to have he.
