Napoli contacts Rakitic
Ivan Rakitic's future at Barcelona is uncertain. Both parties involved have given signs that their relationship will end with the current season, but neither has taken a step forward.
With a contract until June 2021, this summer is looking to be decisive for his future. Barcelona will try to sell him, and Napoli has now become an option.
According to 'Radio Kiss Kiss', the Neapolitan team has already gotten in touch with the Croatian footballer, although signing him will not be easy.
The economic crisis the COVID-19 pandemic has caused means that making any large transfer will become more difficult than ever before.
And it seems this issue is a double-edged sword for Barcelona. Rakitic's departure should have been able to fund at least some part of Lautaro Martínez and Neymar's signings, but it may not prove nearly enough.
However, Napoli still prove a good option for the Croatian midfielder, who has repeatedly said he wants to have more minutes on the field.
One of the footballer's dream is to come back to Sevilla, the club where he became known in La Liga. Other options are an Atletico de Madrid, which would offer him the possibility of fighting for titles.
