Chelsea are eyeing to make a move for the star Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic in the summer transfer window. The contract of the Croatian midfielder with Barcelona is going to expire at the end of 2020-21 season. The club management of Barcelona are not going to extend the contract of Ivan Rakitic beyond that season. So, the best option for them will be selling Ivan Rakitic in the next summer transfer window.
Cesc Fabregas left Chelsea this season to join AS Monaco as he was not getting enough gametime at Stamford Bridge under the management of Maurizio Sarri. Maurizio Sarri told that the Blues would need a replacement of Cesc Fabregas as soon as possible. However, the Blues are still not able to find a prpoer replacement of Fabregas yet in this winter transfer window.
Paris Saint Germain signed Leandro Paredes who was Chelsea’s prime target in this winter transfer window with a trabtran fee worth £40 million. If the Blues are not able to sign a central midfielder within the next few days, they will surely go for Ivan Rakitic in the next summer. It will be a good signing for the Blues as Rakitic can still play an important role in the midfield of Chelsea for the next two years.
