Barcelona would be silly to sell Ivan Rakitic to PSG

PSG are interested in signing Ivan Rakitic of FC Barcelona. But the Catalan club would be silly to let him go…

La Liga will be hotly contested this season. It will be full of drama, as it so often is. With Atletico Madrid looking like a force and Real Madrid looking like they could cause a few spills, it’s important Barcelona remain on top of their game.

To do that, they must avoid losing any key players – something which Real Madrid have done.

It was reported that PSG would pursue Ivan Rakitic, a midfield general in Barca’s ranks. But, Barcelona have no plans to let go of Rakitic.

Rakitic was a shining star at the World Cup. He was one half of a midfield pairing that reached the final, in which he was partnered alongside Luka Modric. While that name doesn’t go down too well in Catalonia, there’s no doubt that Rakitic will have learned plenty from their summer together.

In fact, Rakitic even picked up a goal against Lionel Messi’s Argentina, a match in which the midfielder was deemed Man of the Match. He played back-to-back extra times, which would have helped him on a stamina front.

With the departure of Andres Iniesta only just beginning to feel real, Rakitic will know that it’s on him to make the Barca fans feel at ease.
