Rakitic speaks about his future
Manchester United target Ivan Rakitic has claimed that he is happy with the signing of Frenkie De Jong at Barcelona. The former Sevilla star has been linked with a move away from the Camp Nou but it seems as though he doesn't want to leave.
The Croat claimed that he was elated with the fact that the team was able to provide the services of the midfielder.
"I'm glad they signed him [De Jong] up, "Rakitic told Mundo Deportivo.
"First of all there is a young boy who is playing well and I am glad that the club continues to strengthen. Every good player that can arrive, delighted.
"But also everyone has their place," he continued. "He arrives but I am convinced that he will arrive for my position, my position is occupied."
He also wished the young Dutchman good luck prior to joining the team and that the two did not actually play in the same role, which is why he does not understand why they are interested.
"I wish you good luck and I respect you one hundred percent. Besides, he is playing in another position that is not mine, I know not why they relate him to me."
Finally, he added that he is glad with De Jong's arrival at Barcelona.
"I'm glad you like it. I hope you have a good morning now that you're in Barcelona, that you enjoy and are welcome."
