Ivan Rakitic and Philippe Coutinho are reportedly ‘determined’ to remain at Barcelona ahead of next season.
Ivan Rakitic and Philippe Coutinho are reportedly keen to remain at Barcelona.
Both players have been heavily linked with an exit from Camp Nou, and a wide range of clubs are said to be preparing offers for the pair.
However, according to the Daily Mail, Rakitic and Coutinho are determined to ensure that they are not forced out of the club ahead of next season.
Rakitic has enjoyed a successful five-year spell with the Catalan giants, but Frenkie de Jong has already been signed to replace the Croatia international.
Coutinho has scored 21 goals during his 16-month spell with Barcelona, although that has not been enough to impress the club’s board or supporters after a big-money move from Liverpool.
