Man Utd Will Go Head To Head With Liverpool To Sign La Liga Creative Midfielder
Manchester United and Liverpool are prepared to battle it out in an effort to sign FC Barcelona creative midfielder, Ivan Rakitic. That’s according to the Birmingham Mail.
Seemingly, Lionel Messi is adamant that the 30-year-old will not be sold this summer transfer window, but that reportedly won’t prevent Jurgen Klopp and Jose Mourinho battling it out to sign the Croatia star.
It comes as no surprise that Manchester United are working on deals to bring in at least one central midfielder in the summer transfer window, especially with Michael Carrick retiring and Marouane Fellaini can’t agree on a contract extension.
Even if Belgian signs, it’s clear that the midfield needs some work doing to it. Paul Pogba is struggling at present, and although English young midfielder Scott McTominay, you cannot put it all on the shoulders of a 21-year-old who has only just made his Premier League debut in the first-team.
Rakitic is excellent on the ball, always makes the right and key pass. He’d be an excellent addition for Mourinho’s side, also would be the perfect box-to-box midfielder who’d accompaniment Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba wonderfully.
