Rakitic Keen to Leave Barcelona

Rakitic Keen to Leave Barcelona

Following the hugely exciting signing of Philippe Coutinho, it appears that on of Barcelona`s current squad could be set to leave.

According to the Spanish news source, Diariogol, Ivan Rakitic/b> could be set to leave the Camp Nou.

Obviously realising that his place in the starting eleven has come under serious threat since the arrival of Coutinho, the Croatian midfielder is, according to our referenced source, keen to leave.

Now whether that wish will be granted in the January transfer window or whether he`ll be made to wait until the summer window remains to be seen.

At 29-years-of-age, Rakitic needs regular first-team football and his potential availability has attracted the attention of two clubs in the English Premier League, with the duo being Liverpool and Arsenal, with another possible destination being touted as Juventus.

Here at Vital Barcelona we`ll keep an eye out for any further developments and report back as deemed necessary.
