Ivan Rakitic could possibly set to leave Barcelona.
He has been linked with a move to Villareal. Villarreal president Fernando Roig told Cadena Cope’s El Partidazo programme on signing Rakitic: “I like him a lot as a footballer, if he wants to come to Villarreal, we are here.”
Rakitic has now himself hinted that he may leave the club.
“When parties sign a contract it is with the idea of fulfilling it,” Rakitic told Spanish radio stations on Monday night, as cited by Marca. “Also with the idea that I want to play, but I am calm about it.
“I would have liked that at some point someone from the club had come out to say that Rakitic was staying to end the rumors. Bartomeu has not told me anything. Perhaps today he is listening to us and tomorrow he is going to call me.
“Summers transfers? If (Inter striker) Lautaro Martinez arrives, I would be delighted but that is not to do with me.
“I have never closed the doors to make a big change (in my career).
“My family’s future? We will go to live in Seville sooner or later, almost certainly.”
