We are now in the summer transfer season and managers are working around the clock to acquire their target this transfer window and today we have Manchester United which have plans to sign Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic.
According to media reports, The Uruguayan International Luis Suarez is concerned that Croatian International Ivan Rakitic might make a move to the Old Trafford this summer transfer season has United offer £61m for the midfielder and a good contract deal.
Ivan Rakitic has moved up in ranks starting from Sevilla were he was one of the best midfielders in Europe during his three year contract with the Spanish side he also was a major factor in their Europa League title win before making a move to Barcelona in 2014. The midfielder has won three La Liga titles and one Champions League title since he joined Barcelona four years ago.
In recent times according to media report Barcelona is working on strengthening their midfield more which brings more interest from European clubs now that the future of the midfielder is in doubt.
Presently it has been stated by Manchester United that they are ready to make contact and hold talks over the 30 year old midfielder on a possible deal while Italian side Juventus has also shown interest in the midfielder as they also bid for his signature.
The Manchester Uniteid midfield is really shaky at the moment with Marouane Fellaini leaving this summer on a free transfer and Michael Carrick just retired. Anyway, Jose Mourinho has already ageed a deal with shaktar Donetsk over Fred but the United head Coach is still very much interested on bringing more midfielders to the Old Trafford.
Manchester United will be stronger if they could lure a World class midfielder such as Ivan Rakitic to the Old Trafford this summer and it seems the midfielder is planning in a move himself as media report shows that Luis Suarez is concerned that the player may leave this transfer window as he’s tempted to do so.
Rakitic is said to be concerned about his future in Barcelona if the Spanish giants were to sign another midfielder to the team so the player isn’t putting all his eggs in the Barcelona basket as he’s working on a move to the Old Trafford if Barcelona is to make a new midfielder deal.
Juventus won’t give up so easily on the chase for Ivan Rakitic this summer as the Juventus manager also has plans on acquiring the midfielder but don’t forget that United have the financial power to lure Rakitic to their side if they show enough interest in the midfielder than Juventus this season.
