Ivan Rakitic’s agent-brother has played down rumours linking the Croatian ace to Inter Milan but suggested a move could still be on the cards.

Reports from Daily star confirmed that the Nerazzurri were close to agreeing to a fee in the region of €50m for the Croatia international.

However, his representative was quick to refute those rumours of a potential move when he spoke to Tuttomercatoweb – without ruling one out completely.

Former Barcelona captain Xavi Hernandez is looking forward to his coaching career as he closes in on his final professional match for Al Sadd   There are rumours...

“Today the situation is easy to explain: Rakitic is very happy at Barcelona, Barca are one of the biggest clubs in the world and Ivan is happy to be a part of them,” explained Dejan.

“However, I can’t say what his future will be. The season isn’t over yet, there’s still a few games left.

“Ivan wants to focus on the Copa del Rey Final against Valencia and he wants to bring home another trophy.

“He has had a great season and many at Barcelona think so too. As for the match with Liverpool, it was a game for everyone, but that doesn’t take away from the good year Barca had.”
