Offers for Rakitic

2018 Aug 9

The great World Championship that Ivan Rakitic has made has not gone unnoticed by the big clubs in Europe, who know that their clause of cancellation (125 million euros) is now quite affordable as is the market. There have been several teams that have polled the Croatian player, but two of them have even submitted important economic offers, PSG and Monaco.Rakitic was the last year the player most used by Ernesto Valverde and since his arrival at the Camp Nou has been an indisputable fixed in the starting eleven. Last season his presence alongside Sergio Busquets was basic for Valverde's 4-4-2 run, although this does not prevent him from appearing every summer in a pool to be traded.In recent days it was speculated even in England with the option of Rakitic enter the operation Pogba, but the player has always reiterated his intention to stay at the Camp Nou. It has a contract until 2021 and its termination clause is 125 million euros.The interest of the PSG is the most worrisome for the interests of Barca, since the Parisian club has economic potential to pay even the clause of rescission of the Croatian. And especially because it is a club 'little friend' of Barca, after the refusal to transfer to Verratti and Rabiot and especially for what happened now a year ago with Neymar. The Parisian club has tried to sign Kanté, but Chelsea has not agreed to negotiate his departure, so in Paris they have raised the addition of Rakitic.In principle, neither the Croatian wants to leave Barça nor the Barça club has any intention of transferring it, so the appearance of external offers should not affect their future.The Monaco, meanwhile, must enter this summer 180 million of the transfer with compulsory purchase of Mbappé and has sold to Lemar for 70 million and Fabinho for 45, so it has the box full of millions and needs to be strengthened to deal with certain guarantees the Champions. They have already joined the Russian Golovin, one of the sensations of the World Cup, but after the defeat in the French Super Cup against PSG they are aware that they need reinforcements to compete in Europe and to face the Parisians in Ligue 1.In the market of departures and with some signing still to be done, the important offers by Ivan Rakitic will suppose a new headache for the Barça sports management, which does not contemplate the option of selling it.
