Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic rules out Man Utd move

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has ruled out a move to Manchester United.

The Daily Mail says United's pursuit of the Croatian has hit a wall, with his family not keen on moving to Manchester.

The 31-year-old star is hopeful of staying at the Nou Camp but if his situation doesn't change and he is forced out, Rakitic and his family would prefer a move to Paris, Milan or a location with warmer climes than Manchester.

United enquired about Rakitic in December and January and the clubs maintained dialogue but that tailed off in March.

Barcelona are desperate to sell a few players to free up some money so sounded out United again but Rakitic's family have made it clear they don't want to move to Manchester.
