Inter following Rakitic: no renewal and Frenkie De Jong are two factors pushing the Croatian out of Barcelona
In Spain, they are certain: Ivan Rakitic has an offer from Suning to leave Barcelona and wear the black and blue colors of Inter in the summer. Despite the expected denial of the Croatian’s agent, there is a margin to bring the midfielder to Appiano Gentile according to Tuttosport.
Rakitic will turn 31 next month and has an expiring contract in 2021. The biggest reason why people think that his time at Barcelona is now over (or at least close to be) is because the €75M spent on Frenkie De Jong, unanimously considered the heir of the Croatian. It is clear that Barca would like to start a new era and, in the absence of a new contract, Rakitic could end up on the market.
