Inter Milan to push for Rakitic signing this month
Inter Milan are showing no signs of slowing down in the transfer market even after signing Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United for a reported £72 million. They are now preparing to make a hard push for unsettled Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic before the transfer window closes.
Antonio Conte has expressed his desire to sign the Croatian international. As such, Inter Milan are ready to make an offer to Barcelona who currently have a surplus of central midfielders in their lineup.
However, the price tag, which is in excess of €50 million, that Barcelona have slapped on Rakitic could prove to be a real stumbling block. In addition to that, Barcelona have not given up hopes of including Rakitic in a swap deal for Neymar. As such, Neymar is almost certain to have an impact on Inter Milan's hopes of adding Rakitic to their squad.
