Inter back in for Rakitic
The Inter board aren't giving up their perseverance of forming one of the best squads in the world. They have already completed the first step with the arrival of Conte, but Rakitic continues to be their main target.
At the San Siro they consider it vital to get a CM. They have 2 options; the 2nd one is if they don't' manage to get Rakitic, according to 'La Gazzetta dello Sport".
De Jong's arrival has left Rakitic out of the team, and he will also not be happy with how he was treated in the last transfer window with his inclusion in "operation Neymar".
But the negotiations aren't easy and Valverde will have the final say on his exit. In case it doesn't happen, Inter are also keen on Nemanja Matic.
The 'red devil' is contracted until June 2020 and United want to renew it, but the Serb could take the same path as Lukaku and Alexis Sánchez to strengthen Inter's midfield.
