The "Marca" already reported in mid-October that the player bound until 2021 deals with a farewell in winter. According to the Mundo Deportivo, both Juventus and Inter Milan are potential customers. "I understand and respect the decisions of the coach, the club, or whoever hits them.

Rakitic joined FC Barcelona in the summer of 2014 for 18 million euros from Barca.
