Movistar +: Atlético offers € 40 M for Rakitic

The rojiblanco club is willing to take over the transfer of the Croatian midfielder, who currently enjoys very few opportunities in Ernesto Valverde's Barcelona.


According to Susana Guasch's words in #Vamos, by Movistar +, Ivan Rakitic's future could soon be resolved. The Croatian midfielder has already said he wants minutes: "I am sad because my ball has been taken away." This season has lost prominence in the team led by Ernesto Valverde and many teams are aware of it.

According to the chain, "Rakitic could leave Barça in January, in the winter market". Moreover, they say that Atlético de Madrid wants to hire him, knowing that they could win a quality point in the midfield: "There is a club that is willing to pay what Barça asks. It's Atlético de Madrid."

On the other hand, Guasch explained that the price of the transfer would be set at 40 million euros, an amount requested by the Barca club in summer and figure that the red and white are willing to pay: "It would be about 40 million euros, what they asked for in summer ".

They rated the bargain offer, but do not lose sight of the high salary of the Croatian footballer: "It is even cheap. Another thing is its chip, which is about 6.5 million euros." Atlético de Madrid has Thomas, Saúl, Koke, Llorente and Herrera as current midfielders, but Rakitic would give them a bonus when it comes to circulating the ball.

The Croatian has played ten games so far this year, but none of them complete, accumulating only 255 minutes, that is, the equivalent of less than three whole games. The fans love him in Barcelona, but at Camp Nou there are overbooking of midfielders and Valverde has often decided to opt for Busquets, Arthur and De Jong, giving Sergi Roberto or Arturo Vidal more minutes when one of these has failed.
