Ivan Rakitić who fetched the Repsol Extraordinary Trophy along with Samuel Umtiti for his FIFA World Cup performance at the Mundo Deportivo Gala awards is one hell of a football player.
He is currently playing for Barca but rumours are that he will be shown the exit door soon, speaking about the same Ivan said: “I want to be here, and if I can renew, be here for a few more years. I’m very happy here, everyone knows it, most of all the president. I don’t have to say anything else.”
He was also questioned about the joining of Frenkie de Jong and if his arrival would bring changes in the club, Ivan said: “That is a good question for the coach or for the president. The people who know me know that I am only here to play. I approach it with calmness and a lot of desire. I am 30 years old, and I am in the best moment of my career. I want to enjoy football and Barça.”
The maverick also talked about the Copa del Rey clash against Sevilla, he said: “We want to win. We know that it’s going to be very complicated after the result in Sevilla. It will be very special playing against ‘my guys,’ to say it a certain way, but we already came back in the tie against Levante, and we want to do the same now to stay in the cup.”
