Ivan Rakitic has confirmed that he will stay at Barcelona.
“I spoke to the club ten or 15 days ago and the conclusion is that I have nothing to talk about because I have a contract until the summer of 2021 with Barcelona and it is the entity I want to be in and play with.
“Furthermore, my wife and my daughters are good in the city. There is no reason to think about other things. I am training well and I am sure that Ivan (Rakitic) will be in Barcelona longer.”
“It is not nice when you do not play, especially when you do not understand why and they do not explain the reasons,” said Rakitic. “But I respect the coach’s decisions. I am in a team sport, not individual.”
Rakitic is fully focussed on helping Barcelona as well win the title.
He added: “The most important thing to me is the present moment, and that means we are starting the championship next weekend. We must be ready for that too.
“With the years I have, I think I have proven that football is most important to me. I simply want to be happy and enjoy. That means winning a lot more trophies with Barcelona.”
