Barcelona midfielder Rakitic fielded Chelsea, Man Utd, Juventus offers

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic fielded several Premier League offers in the final days of the summer market.

But he ignored interest from Manchester United and Chelsea to pledge his future to Barcelona.

El Mundo Deportivo says “Ivan said he was not interested in offers from Juventus, Manchester United and Chelsea and Barcelona will offer him a new contract".

Rakitic signed a five-year contract with Barca in July 2014, joining from Sevilla where he was captain.

He has gone on to play 118 times for the Catalan club, scoring 18 goals and registering 16 assists.
