United can sign Barca’s Rakitic
30-year-old Rakitic can pursue his career in England. Manchester United became interested in Barcelona’s midfielder Ivan Rakitic, The Sun reported.
The Croat’s contract with the Catalans expires at the end of June 2021, but the Old Rady will be ready to pay 57 million pounds for the player this summer.
There was an information that Rakitic was negotiating to extend the contract with Barcelona, but the new agreement has not been signed yet and, possibly, will not be signed.
We note that PSG and Inter are also showing interest in Rakitic.
After Barcelona’s transfer of Frenkie de Jong and Adrien Rabiot’s possible acquisition, Ivan Rakitic could lose his place in the first team, so he decided to ask the Blaugranas management to let him go to Inter.
