Ivan Rakitic has played down talk of a potential move to Inter, insisting that Barcelona are ‘perfect’ for him.
Inter were reportedly closing in on a deal to sign Rakitic for next season, but the midfielder made it clear he would not leave Barca unless he was pushed.
“Are you Italian?” asked the 30-year-old in his interview with DAZN.
“I like living in Spain. Unfortunately I can’t ask for another passport because I already have two, otherwise I’d also ask for a Spanish one because I’m fine here and I’m happy.
“My family are happy here too and my daughters are doing well in Barcelona because we’re close to Seville. Therefore, staying here is perfect for me.”
