The name of Ivan Rakitic already has been related with numerous clubs along the last weeks, with his exit of the FC Barcelona increasingly near by his fault of opportunities and loss of the titularity. One of the teams that had sounded recently was the Athletic of Madrid, but seems that in Can Barça do not have any intention that the Croatian midfield player do the cases course to Wanda Metropolitan.

The aim is not reinforcing to a direct rival in the fight by LaLiga Santander and the Glass of Rey, because of the quality of the footballer and to the improvement that could arouse in a medullary rojiblanca that at present is cortocircuitada, without that men like Koke Resurrection, Llorente or Saúl Ñíguez are offering his best version in the last months.

The arrival of Rakitic could revitalizar the game of the Athletic, and the FC Barcelona does not wish that this suceda. In this sense, there will be free road for Simeone and will value other options like the Premier League and the Series To Italian, where several clubs are interested in doing with the services of the Croatian.

The FC Barcelona thinks in a traspaso and no in a cession, when having the will of ingresar a remarkable quantity of money that help him to balance the economic balance and, in passing, subtract something of 'overbooking' to the current centre of the field culé, where footballers like Carles Aleñá and Riqui Puig do not have fit, without explaining to Sergi Roberto that theoretically it had to current in the medullary and, instead of this, has seen relegado again to the right side.

Rakitic Will leave to a big club of Europe

Juventus, Inter of Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United would be the four more interested clubs, for the time being, in the signing of Rakitic. The Barça will value his offers, but also will listen to Rakitic to know which is his preference. The Croat is more than amortised and has completed four seasons and fantastic average in the rows culés.

The barcelonismo has him a big affection, wishes him the best and big part of him would not wish that it have to do the cases to another club. To his 31 years and in spite of being a player still of world-wide size, has seen how Frenkie of Jong has advanced him by the right. And, as he same said, will not remain in Barcelona only to "stroll by the sea". Still it has are competitive, and will take advantage of it. It was in Barcelona or elsewhere.
