Already they go two the times in that it has linked strongly to the Athletic of Madrid with the possible signing of Ivan Rakitic, both in hardly a week. If the group colchonero already denied the rumours the first time, has gone back it to do in this occasion. And no because Rakitic do not interest him, but because the team rojiblanco finds in a delicate economic situation.

There is not plan of fichar to any reinforcement in this next market of winter, and of face to the next summer could be explained the signings that arrive to Wanda Metropolitan. In the case to bet by a signing of campanillas, besides, the priority to day of today for the team of Simeone is to look for to a forward with goal that can relieve to Diego Coast, racked by the physical problems from the past season.

Rakitic Is a midfield player that likes a lot to the Athletic, but in these moments the club chaired by Enrique Cerezo would not be in disposal to pay the 40 million euros in which roughly it would be priced the footballer. From the club, therefore, insist in that there is not at all although the chain 'Go' signalled days backwards that the Atleti was had to bid strong by his services in the market of winter.

Rakitic Will do the cases of the FC Barcelona with all probability in January of 2020, but hardly will be with destination to the Spanish capital. The Barça, besides, neither has intention to reinforce to one of his rival maxima in the fight by the titles so much in Spain as in Europe.

The Athletic already has covered the limit salarial for this season

LaLiga Establishes for all the teams a limit salarial in which it includes the index card of the players of the first staff, the amortizaciones by signings and cessions, as well as a quantity related with the basic football. The Athletic already has covered said limit to 100%, by what does not foresee that this winter tackle incorporations unless they arrive free.

Between Thomas, Herrera, Koke, Saúl and Llorente will have to follow carrying the weight of the centre of the field in Wanda Metropolitan, at least to the end of the present season. For then, probably Rakitic already will play in another big club of Europe. Juventus, Inter, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Manchester United are others of the clubs that follow him closely.
