Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic might not be at the Camp Nou after this season as the Croat is a player that the Catalans want to sell. According to a report from Sport, the sale of Paul Pogba might trigger United to sign the former Sevilla star.
The fee for the player isn’t going to go below €50 million as United have made the World Cup runner-up a priority.
