Ivan Rakitic has insisted that he is enjoying his time at Barcelona and has no intention of leaving the club.

Ivan Rakitic has struggled to make his place in the Barcelona squad lately. The Croatian faces a tough competition Sergio Busquets, Arturo Vidal, and new signing Frenkie de Jong.

Despite getting behind in the pecking order, Ivan Rakitic has no intention of leaving Barcelona. The 31-year old insisted that he is ready to give everything for his team and has no complaints.

“Lots of things have happened in the last few months,” Rakitic told as per Bleacher Report.

“Sometimes, things happen that you can’t understand, but you have to accept it. It’s happened to me. No one gives you anything,” he added.

“I want to give my all and if I can play here then I’ve always said that there’s no better place than Barcelona to keep winning trophies, it’s the perfect place for me.

“I want to enjoy myself and try to help the team improve. I’m giving my best and if it can be like it has been in the last few games then that’s even better,” the Barcelona midfielder said.

Ivan Rakitic is tied to Barcelona until 2021. The midfielder has been constantly linked with a move away from Camp Nou but he dismissed any possible speculation.
