Manchester United are being linked with a move for Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic.
According to reports from Spain, as cited by Calciomercato, the Red Devils are interested in a summer swoop for the Croatian midfielder as they aim to bolster their options in the middle.
United have been linked with a number of central midfielders, including Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Toni Kroos, and the latest name to be touted with a move to Old Trafford is Barcelona’s Rakitic.
However, the Red Devils are not alone in their admiration of the experienced midfielder. If reports are to be believed, Juventus are also considering a summer swoop for Rakitic in the summer transfer window.
Rakitic remains a hugely important player for Ernesto Valverde’s men, though, and with his contract still running until 2021 at Camp Nou, a huge price is likely to be required to convince Barca to sell.
The 30-year-old has started 27 La Liga games for his side this season.
