The FC Barcelona works in the reform of the staff that will make next summer, and one of the names stood out is Ivan Rakitic. The one of Möhlin was about to to leave in the past window estival, but the negotiations no fructificaron and opted for continuing in the Camp Nou. He is decided to fulfil an agreement that expires in 2021, but the sportive managers prefer traspasarle and it will be necessary to arrive to an agreement.

If it has to abandon the City Condal, the Croat already has chosen team, and his priority would be the Seville. Other big, like Juventus, PSG or Athletic of Madrid, also have him in the sight, but to his 31 years would love him finish his career in Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, where already have left to fall, in several occasions and the same that it has done it the midfield player, that would be had to do him a gap.

The problem is that the Andalusians would have problems to assume the 20 million euros that demand the culés, what would leave them in clear disadvantage with regard to his competitors, with budgets a lot greater. The entity only could tackle his incorporation if the crack recessed notably the wage, a question that equally needs to fit him inside the economic parameters of his own changing room.

According to the newspaper 'Sport', the Barcelona do not close the door to an exchange, but for the time being only are interested in two players. In his plans to reinforce the saga would fit Jules Koundé, French of 21 years to the one who already were still in his stage in the Girondins of Burdeos, and Diego Carlos, Brazilian of 27 that after abandoning his country and go through several European groups has turned into disclosure with the blanquirrojos.

For the moment, only there has been a contact between both clubs, and this road has not explored in depth. The quoted half specifies that Rakitic will have an important weight to the hour to take decisions, and thus it will have to participate also in the research of solutions. The ex of the Schalke is very wished by his quality, experience and delivery in spite of his experience, and it will be necessary to see which confirms like his next destination.

The value of Rakitic follows falling

Although the Barça has had several opportunities to sell to Rakitic, his doubts have caused a painful devaluation. The runner-up of the world cost more than 70 million euros does hardly a year and half, but the indecision of the managers culés and his step to title indisputable to acting have affected to his valuation. Although the Juve offered 40 in January, finally will leave by a modest price.
