Premier League giants Manchester United will reportedly turn their attention to Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic.

This is according to the report from Catalan news portal Sport which revealed that the Red Devils will make a bid for the Croatian World Cup star.

Ivan Rakitic was an integral part of the Croatia team that surprised a lot of football fans by getting to the final of the World Cup last summer.

Croatia were beaten 4-2 in the final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

The aforementioned report said that Manchester United will concentrate on a move for Rakitic after securing the transfer of Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal.

The 21-year-old became a Manchester United player earlier today in a deal said to be worth £50m including £5m in add-ons.

Barcelona are open to the idea of letting Ivan Rakitic leave the club this summer but the Catalans want at least €50m for him.

Manchester United had earlier offered €35m for the former Sevilla player this summer and the Red Devils have concluded plans to return with the same offer.

Apart from Ivan Rakitic, Manchester United have been linked with several midfielders this summer.

Sean Longstaff, Youri Tielemans and Bruno Fernandes are some of the midfielders linked with Manchester United this summer.
