Rakitic opens the door to an exit in January
Rakitic has gone from being Ernesto Valverde's right-hand man, to playing only six matches, in which he started only one. A situation that the footballer does not like as he is used to getting minutes.
In this way, and if the situation doesn't change in the next three months, Ivan Rakitic could say goodbye to Barcelona. The Croatian has to start or get more minutes to stay at the club.
The midfielder is aware that his name has been one of the proposed to sell in the past winter market and, for this reason, he has also lost importance in the squad.
In addition to that, Frenkie de Jong has taken his place in the starting XI. And, as a revulsive, Arturo Vidal appears before the Croatian international, vilified in this campaign by Valverde.
Rakitic now has three months to decide if he wants to force an exit or if he wants to continue, atleast, until June. Juventus ruled out his signing in January. However, Inter could be his next destination.
