Rakitic back in Inter's plans
As shown by 'Tuttosport', Inter Milan will turn their attention back to Ivan Rakitic this winter market, due to a request from Antonio Conte. The Italian coach underlined the Croatian's name in his agenda as a primary objective.
In this way, the cited media states that the defeats against Juventus and Barcelona have alerted them about the lack of competitiveness in midfield, which means that Inter see it necessary to improve the quality of this position.
Ivan Rakitic has played just six games for Barcelona this season, in which he has only started one. The runner-up at the World Cup in Russia has been relegated to the bench, after two seasons of being Ernesto Valverde's key man.
However, in Italy it is said that Inter are considering other alternatives in case the Croatian does not decide to leave the Camp Nou. Names such as Arturo Vidal, Donny van de Beek, Nemanja Matic and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic also surround Milan.
