Rakitic insists he will stay as he sends another message to Barcelona. Ivan Rakitic has reiterated once again that his plan is to remain at Barcelona until his contract expires in 2021, as he has said on several occasions.
The Croatian has been linked with a move away from Camp Nou and Barça have looked to move him on but he sent the club a powerful message, asking for “clarity” in the talks.
“I don’t want to look too far ahead.” he told Sport1. “The people at the club know that Barça is the perfect club for me. I always sign a contract to fulfill it. I still want that.”
“I am not angry with anyone, I still have a great relationship with everyone at the club and I am incredibly grateful for the time I have spent at Barça.”
“I know how the business of football works and that we are players and that the bosses want the best for the club. But I have the right to decide for myself the direction I want to go. I wanted to make that clear again.”
