Rakitic: Neymar and Mbappe at Barcelona? That's Disneyland!

Ivan Rakitic has dubbed talk of Barcelona signing PSG stars Neymar and Kylian Mbappe as the stuff of "Disneyland".

The Barca veteran has laughed off the transfer speculation, despite talk of him being included in a swap offer for Neymar.

Asked how Barca would pay to buy back Neymar, Rakitic laughed: "Possibly, like all the dads we see a lot of Disney now, many movies and many little cartoons...

"There is some magician out there who is also mixing something!"

Rakitic, tied to Barca until 2021, has also been mentioned as a makeweight in the club's bid for Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez.
