The most likely today is that Ivan Rakitic doesn't continue in the FC Barcelona the next season, and the Atlético of Madrid would be the priority for the Croat
The future is still in the air for some players of the FC Barcelona that, unless they change a lot the things, will have it very complicated to follow dressing the Barcelona T-shirt the next season 2020-21. One of them is Ivan Rakitic, that is not playing to the level expected in the last months and that does time that has lost the condition to title in the Barcelona team.
To his 31 years, his more likely destination to day of today would be the Athletic of Madrid, that will have to make an offer that satisfy the interests of the Barça to do with his services. The newspaper 'Mark' has informed that the past 20 February, after the 'colchoneros' won to the Liverpool (1-0) in the gone of eighth of Champions League, two intermediaries gathered with Ivan Rakitic.
The quoted newspaper signals that the will of the player would be to finish in the Athletic of Madrid, club to the that would have offered , as long as the 'colchoneros' do all the possible for ficharle. The Croatian midfield player wishes to follow playing in Spain, where is fully settled with his family, and Madrid is a city where would love him live temporarily.
'Mark' ensure, even, that the family of Rakitic already would have thrown him the eye to a house in Boadilla of the Mountain. Fichando By the Athletic of Madrid, Rakitic could top a sportive career in which so much Seville like Barça have enjoyed of one of the best midfield players of the last years. It would follow having of the option to struggle by the most important titles, and like this would not have to move of a country that already considers his house.
Rakitic Has complicated to be still in the Barça
The supposed contact kept on 20 February does not remove, by against, that have to fulfil a series of contractual conditions so that Rakitic finish in the Athletic of Madrid. If these do not fulfil , Rakitic would not have problem in following dressing the T-shirt of the Barça a season more, until it arrive the end of his agreement in summer of 2021. Then it could decide freely his future and earn a succulent premium of signing in his new club.
In any case, and although it was not the Athletic of Madrid his destination this next summer, seems very complicated that Rakitic can remain a season more in the FC Barcelona. The culés wish to renew the staff with new faces and signings of height, and the 'overbooking' that breathes in the medullary could have to Rakitic like main victim. If it does not finish in the Athletic, will do it in another big club of Europe. Unless, for surprise of all, was still in the Barça...
