Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic’s uncertain future at the club took another turn on Monday as the Croatian’s agent ruled out the possibility of a summer exit.
Rakitic’s contract with the Catalan club runs until the summer of 2021, but the midfielder has been pushing for a renewal for a while now.
Last summer, French giants Paris Saint-Germain were interested in the World Cup finalist, but he decided to stay at Barcelona.
Rakitic has now established himself as one of the key players under Ernesto Valverde once again, but the arrival of Dutch sensation Frenkie de Jong in the summer will threaten his starting spot.
With rumours of a possible move to PSG in the summer making the rounds, the transfer saga has took another twist, as Rakitic’s representative Arturo Canales told the Italian press that the Croatian will not be moving in the summer.
“It is an impossible scenario to see Ivan leaving Spain in the summer,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport, as cited by Marca.
Inter have also shown interest in the Croatian and could challenge PSG in the scenario that the Rakitic decides to move.
