Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic targets landmark game

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic says he wants to reach his landamark 300 games for the club.

Rakitic is enduring self-isolation like all his teammates during the coronavirus suspension.

"The truth is that it's altered everything in life although I recognise that I miss the rest of my team-mates, training and being close with people," said Rakitic.

He said he's really looking forward to the normality of life coming back, "to fight for the objectives" that the team has, but also one personal one.

"I want to return to play my 300th game for Barcelona," he said. "I knew that it was close but not so close."

He has played 299.
