Chelsea get £35m Rakitic decision as PSG open up on possible Neymar sale
Chelsea transfer target Ivan Rakitic has said that he’d like to stay at Barcelona, amid rumours he could leave.
Rakitic is regarded as one of the best holding midfielders in the game and is an integral part of the Barcelona side, but he is coming to the back end of his top-level career and there has been much speculation that he could be sold in the summer transfer window.[the_ad id=”164″]
We have been heavily linked with a transfer move as they seek to add a few more superstars to the side, and all indications suggested that Barcelona would be open to doing a deal in the summer if the right amount of money was offered by Maurizio Sarri.
But according to Mundo Deportivo, the Croatian midfielder wants to ignore all the speculation linking him with ta summer move away and instead would prefer to stay at the Camp Nou and finish his top-level career with the Champions.

Real Madrid and Chelsea have been warned off Neymar by PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.
Neymar is regarded as one of the best players in world football and has been lined up by us as a possible replacement for star man Eden Hazard, who is heavily tipped to ignore the £350,000-a-week contract offer from the Blues to get his dream move to Real Madrid in the summer.
However, we have now been warned off any possible deal for Naymar, with PSG claiming that the Brazilian superstar will not be on the market this coming summer transfer window.
“Real Madrid know that Neymar is not for sale this summer,” said Al-Khelaifi on the Sky Sports website
PSG do not need to sell one of their biggest players, but if the right offer is offered then the player himself may be tempted by a move to the Premier League.
