Man Utd keen on to sign £130,000 a-week Barcelona star

March 14, 2018

Liverpool have joined their bitter Premier League rivals Manchester United in the race to finalise the transfer of Croatian international midfielder Ivan Rakitic.

United have prioritised a central-midfield capture during the upcoming transfer window with Marouane Fellaini is expected to leave the club in the nearby future and long-serving midfielder Michael Carrick is planning to hang his boots on the wall after the season ends.

The Merseyside Reds head-coach boss Jurgen Klopp also has eyes on the Croatian midfielder with German manager sees him as a perfect replacement for Emre Can who has been on the verge to make a move to Juventus.

Although, Rakitic is believed to be keen on to remain at Nou Camp for the rest of his career.

The 30-year-old midfielder who has made the switch to Barcelona back in 2014, has started 29 games in La Liga and the Champions League this campaign..

Liverpool have already agreed on a deal to bring in Naby Keita from RB Leipzig after the end of the current campaign, but Rakitic is a world-class player and would be a perfect addition to Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
