Big money move on the horizon?

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly looking to sign Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic and are willing to spend €90million on the player.

The Croatian has been linked with a move away during the summer transfer window and PSG are the club that has been touted as a potential destination.

Having signed from Sevilla back in 2014, the player has become a key player in the Barcelona midfield.

Possibly Rakitic’s biggest moment in a Barcelona shirt came in the form of his goal against Juventus in the final of the Champions League.

Now, Paris Saint-Germain want him in Ligue 1 and are willing to pay big money according to reports in Spain.

A deal could be done early next week

That is because SPORT are claiming today that the French giants are willing to offer around €90million for Rakitic.

They explain that the player’s release clause is €120million and PSG are very serious about testing Barcelona.

SPORT also claim that PSG want to ‘speak with the player to see if they can reach an agreement with him.’

Amazingly, the same report suggests that there is even a chance that an agreement could be reached ‘early next week’!

What is even more interesting is there have been reports this week that Barcelona are looking to extend his current deal.

Conflicting reports?

Those reports originate from Marca who have suggested both Rakitic and Busquets are in line for new deals.

That comes after Paulinho and Andres Iniesta left the club and Barcelona are supposedly unwilling to let any more go.
