Barcelona have decided to sell Man United target Ivan Rakitic but on one condition

Published

Ernesto Valverde will allow Manchester United target Ivan Rakitic leave this summer as long as Barcelona sign his replacement, according to reports.

The has come as a massive boost for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who has registered the Croatian midfielder in his good books. Solskjaer is keen on making United a more formidable and competitive side and he is shopping for quality players.

Rakitic has been on the radar of Man United since the reign of Jose Mourinho and it now appears the Old Trafford Faithfuls are in a position to prise him away from Camp Nou.

Although United have a plethora of midfielders at the moment, none of the players possess the A-class quality displayed by Rakitic. The 31-year-old midfielder has the ability to retain ball possession and create inch-perfect chances for his attackers – an attribute currently lacking in United.

Several publications have linked United with the player again this summer. And while, the Red Devils have not made any offer to sign the creative midfield schemer, Valverde is resigned to losing him this summer. Sportwitness cited a report from Sport with claims that Valverde will sanction the sale of the player if he finds a replacement.

The player is valued at 40,00 Mill. € but he’s tied to a contract with Barcelona till 2021. He would not want a cheap and short offer to complete a move given his age.

Manchester United Set Sights On Young But Experienced Full-back

Having scored six goals in two matches, it is safe to say that the Red Devils attacking department is back its best (at least for now).

The Red Devils converted three of their shots on target against Brighton in Sunday’s match-day 12 fixture which ended 3-1 in favor of Solskjaer’s men.

The victory took them to the 6th position in the League standings with 16 points as they hope to qualify for next year’s Champions League competition.

Despite the newfound run of form, the Red Devils manager isn’t taking anything for granted regarding the upcoming transfer window as he is targeting some reliable players who will improve the quality of the team.

Valencia’s Jose Gaya is one of the players linked with a move to the Theatre of Dreams as part of Solskjaer’s desire to improve the quality of play at the left-back position in the second half of the season.

Luke Shaw’s injury has obviously created a huge vacuum at the left side of United’s defence and the Norwegian tactician is willing to add the youngster to his team as backup to the English star.

According to Deporte Valenciano, the Old Trafford outfits are monitoring the player’s display for the Spanish side this season and they’re likely to launch a bid for his services in January.

This means either Ashley Young or impressive Brandon Williams could be loaned out to interested suitors in the winter in order to create a space for the Valencia star at Old Trafford.
