Ivan Rakitic

Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona star Ivan Rakitic is the latest name to be linked with a move to the English Premier League giants Chelsea before the end of this January winter transfer window.

There is no doubt about the importance of Ivan Rakitic in the Barcelona team but that is to say, he is not ready for a move away from the North London outfit.

The speculation has therefore been made viral with the front page of Tuesday’s edition of Catalan newspaper which reads “Rakitic for Chelsea” to hint that he might be moving to the West London in the coming summer transfer window.

Ivan Rakitic is reportedly being threatened by the expected arrival of Frenkie de Jong at the Camp Nou as he could no longer be the favourite at in the manager Ernesto Valverde team.

Also, there will be a need for the Spanish giants to raise some funds to be able to fund the seal as well as the weekly wages.

However, on their part, Chelsea will be able to fill the gap that has been left by Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas as well as England international Danny Drinkwater who is keen on leaving the club in this winter window.
