Inter Milan plan to take advantage of Ivan Rakitic’s increasing disquiet at Barcelona and are prepared to pay €90 million to land him this summer, according to reports.
Rakitic, 30, has won 12 major trophies at Camp Nou since his arrival from Sevilla in June 2014. But his position in centre midfield at the La Liga giants is threatened by the definite arrival of Ajax’s Frenkie de Jong for 2019/20, plus a pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain’s imminent free agent Adrien Rabiot.
Gazzetta dello Sport have stated that Inter are interested in taking advantage of this uncertainty and offer the Croatia international guaranteed starts. The Nerazzurri courted Real Madrid’s Luka Modric last year, but are now prepared to switch targets to his compatriot.
Rakitic has netted 34 times in 247 appearances for Barca. He also counts Basel and Schalke 04 among his former employers.
