Rakitic dismisses Barcelona exit reports

Ivan Rakitic has dismissed reports linking him with a move to Inter, insisting he is happy at Barcelona.

The Croatia midfielder has been heavily linked with a €50 million move to the Italian side in recent weeks.

However, the 31-year-old insists there is nothing in those claims and he has no plans to leave the club anytime soon.

“I cannot explain it [the Inter rumours]. I respect the other teams a lot. Inter is a great team and we have played against them this year,” he told Mundo Deportivo .

“I have team-mates there and I respect them but one thing does not take away the other.

“I’m where I want to be and if they think about me it’s because I’m doing things well, but I’m happy at Barca, my family too and the girls are happy. I do not have another thought.

“It is a situation that has not been created by me. I have three years left on my contract and this is the place where I want to be, where I am happy.”
