Rakitic to leave the Camp Nou this summer?
Barcelona are reportedly open to selling midfielder Ivan Rakitic, amid rumours that Manchester United could move to sign the Croatian.
Rakitic has been at Barcelona since 2014, when he signed from Sevilla.
Since then, Rakitic has amassed 268 appearances for the Catalan giants, scoring 34 goals and assisting 37.
He didn’t have the worst campaign last season, either, scoring five goals and assisting 10.
However, the Croatian has been linked with a move away this summer.
The Croatian could be seen as a replacement for Ander Herrera, who is set to join Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
Juan Mata could also leave Old Trafford, with his contract set to expire.
Now, it has been suggested that Ernesto Valverde is willing to sell Rakitic, should Barcelona receive a suitable offer for the midfielder.
Barcelona ready to listen to offers
That suggestion comes from Esports SER presenter Sique Rodriguez.
While we don’t know much about his track record in terms of transfers, Rodriguez’s information supposedly reveals that Valverde would let Rakitic go if Barcelona receive a ‘good offer’.
The tweet goes on to explain that Barcelona have had meetings over the past few days to establish which players they could let leave this summer, with Rakitic being one of them.
However, no offer has yet been received, and no club has convinced Rakitic over a Camp Nou departure.
‼️Valverde accepta q Barça vengui a Rakitic si arriba bona oferta
En reunions d’aquests dies, el club ha posat a la taula possibles ventes, en funció d’ofertes, i Rakitic és un jugador amb cartell
Falta q arribi oferta i q convenci tb al jugador
