Rakitic wants to stay at Barcelona

Once again, Ivan Rakitich made it clear that he wants to stay at Barcelona. The midfielder has said that he met with the club 15 days ago and made it clear that they have nothing to say because he will not depart. “Ten or 15 days ago, I talked with the club, and the conclusion was that I have nothing to discuss. Because I have a deal until the summer of 2021 with Barcelona, and this is the club for which I want to be and play. Also, my wife and daughters are fine in the city. I train well, and I’m sure that Rakitic will be at Barcelona for a long time.

The 32-year-old fallen out of the starting line-up this season and was forced to do with a spot on the bench, but he doesn’t kick up a fuss. “It’s unpleasant when you don’t play, especially when you don’t understand why they don’t explain why,” Rakitic said. “But I respect the decisions of the coach. I am in a team sport, not the individual”. Despite his intention to stay in the club, Rakitić has been put up for sale by Barcelona. And he attracted the interest of such Atletico and Sevilla.
